Wildcats and Blazers Travel Teams

Both boys (Blazers) and girls (Wildcats) travel teams in grades 3-8 are offered in the Winter and Spring Seasons. Christopher Spartz Basketball (CSB) manages this basketball program through the Recreation Department. CSB trainers are former college players and current high level coaches that maximize practices. This program is designed to give a more competitive experience for basketball athletes. The program has a fall/winter season and continues with a spring program. These teams represent our community in leagues and tournaments.  Tryouts are held late August/early September and again in the Spring.

Blazers and Wildcats Travel Basketball Bubble

Bubble Expectations:

The Winter will be broken down into 2 Seasons

SEASON 1 

Runs November 1-January 1

2 practices per week (14 total)

1 hr 15min practices:  2/3 CSB Skills Development Coach Run; 1/3 Coach Run

All Practices Held in our Bubble (WS Rec)

12 potential inter squad game dates on Saturdays and Sundays

All Games Coached by Coaches

All Games Held in our Bubble (WS Rec)

Cost Per player for Season 1 is predicated on number of players per team. As of now, our numbers will be less than the Hinsdale Inferno Program that is rolling out a similar plan.

Each coach will advise when their particular teams have been set.

SEASON 2*
*Players must commit to the first season to be a part of the second season.

Predicated on protocol updates from our State and Governor.

Runs January 1-Last week of February

With the objectives listed above, the CSB Skill Development Coaches will work hand in hand with each coach to roll out a plan of attack that can be carried out and executed through January 1. Season 1 will give the CSB Skill Development Coaches a real chance to target areas that each team needs to grow and chart their growth. 

We will discuss more about the team makeup post tryout and even more about times and dates for practices and games a week at max removed from tryouts. 

Based on the rules and regulations handed down by the Governor, we will only be allowed to compete in inter squad games, which means we have to align our practice times with the teams they will be scrimmaging against. We will know what that looks like when we have our teams in place.
