House League Basketball

House League Basketball is a recreational/instructional league, designed to provide each player, regardless of ability, with a positive sports experience. We stress learning, safety, sportsmanship and fun. Parents, please support your young athlete with encouragement and good sportsmanship at all games and practices. Practice begins in December; and, the season starts in early January and ends in mid March. Each team will play 12 games, and have one practice per week. Practices could be any weekday, and games could be played at Cooper Middle School, Willow Grove School, Prairie School or Twin Groves School on Saturdays between 9 am – 6 pm, and on Sundays between 12 – 6 pm. There is a possibility you will be scheduled to play on both days. If your child cannot be available for these days during the season, then we suggest that you consider not participating in this program. For more information, contact Mike Pfeiffer at 847.850.2108 or
