Washington Jr. High

7th & 8th Grade Boys Basketball

Hello Washington Families,

Boys basketball will begin on Monday, November 16th for all 7th and 8th graders interested. Based on the current IDPH & state guidelines, we will not be able to compete in games against other schools this year. However, we will be providing a camp/clinic format that will promote various basketball skills & strategies. Practices will stress ball handling, shooting, passing, along with different defensive principles. These workouts will be done in a fun and competitive environment.

There will be NO tryouts for basketball this year. Athletes will be divided into Pods (7th & 8th grade combinations) and then assigned days to attend. Pods will be run by four basketball coaches daily. As we proceed through the season we will have skill competitions both against each pod and other schools. (information will be provided during the season). There are two Covid related forms that must be submitted prior to the first practice. Form 1 - Form 2 Athletes will not be allowed to attend if they are not completed, they only need to be filled out one time.

In order to participate you must complete our registration form (below) prior to 11/11/20. Schedules and POD information will be emailed to families no later than 11/13/20. Our first practices begin 11/16 with our first assigned group of athletes.
