Hadley Girl’s Basketball

Hadley has a 7th and 8th grade girl’s basketball team. The coaches are looking for

committed athletes eager to improve their game while learning how to play team basketball.

The girl’s season begins in February and goes through March. The teams are part of the

Illinois Prairie Athletic Conference.

Equipment needed: Shoes

Costs: Athletic Fee

Location: Hadley

Tryouts: Girl’s tryouts take place over two or three days after school at the end of

January. The teams will be chosen by the coaches based upon basketball skills, work

ethic, and attitude. Approximately 12 to 15 players will be chosen for the team.

Practices: Practices are every weekday unless there is a game. Practices may be before

school at 7:15am or immediately after school until 5:00pm. A practice schedule will be

provided at the start of the season.

Schedule: Games generally take place at 4 or 5pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 7th and 8th

grade teams play one after the other with the first game starting at 4pm. 7th plays first on

Tuesdays while 8th plays first on Thursdays. There may also be a weekend tournament during the season. Athletes are bused to and from away games except for the weekend tournaments.

Athlete Expectations: Adhere to student-athlete code of conduct. Be present and on

time for all practices and games. Be a positive teammate. Be a focused participant in the

game whether playing or on the bench.

Playing Time: Playing time is determined based upon the level of competition. Not all

players will play in each game, but every player will get significant playing time during

the season.

Communication: There will be a parent meeting at the start of the season in addition to team e-mails and announcements at practices. Please contact coaches via e-mail with any issues that come up during the season.
