The Fall season runs September 7 to October 26. There are two evening practices per week, Mondays 7:00-8:00pm and Wednesdays 6:00-7:00pm at the Montini HS and Carol Stream Rec Center Gyms respectively. These practices focus on skill development with heavy emphasis on ball handling, spacing fundamentals, shooting and shot creation plus scrimmages.
The third practice per week is Sundays 9-10am also at the Montini High School. We will set aside two of the six Sundays for 3-on-3 tournaments among the team participants. 3-on-3 offers a high frequency experience for developing an in-depth understanding of half-court movement, spacing, attacking and defending. With only three players, every athlete must be engaged at every moment. On offense, the athletes are either with the ball or actively moving without the ball via cuts and screens. On defense, they are guarding the ball or getting in position to help.
In addition to the three sessions per week, the team will compete in four (4) local shootouts: Saturdays Sept 24, Oct 1, Oct 15, Oct 22. The shootouts will include two games at a suburban location and provide an opportunity for competitive 5-on-5 play incorporating new skills and playing concepts.
The last two practices of the season will be a skilled grade school clinic focused for grade school preparation on Oct 24th and Oct 26th from 7:00PM-8:30PM.
