About the League

Tryout to play competitive basketball through the Grayslake Park District’s feeder programs! Designed for 5th-8th grade girls and boys who reside within Grayslake High School District 127 boundaries, this program provides players with the opportunity to participate in a competitive basketball league while continuing to learn basketball skills. The Feeder Basketball Program differs from other programs by having team selection through tryouts and a competitive level of practice and games.

Tryouts

Participants must attend at least one tryout to be considered for the team, but the Park District strongly encourages players to attend both dates. Season runs November through mid-March. If you make the team, the league fee is $450 plus a uniform fee of $100.
