Youth Basketball and Restore Illinois 

A modified program will be offered based on the Restore Illinois All Sports Policy. 

Basketball is classified as a medium risk sport which can participate in level 1 and 2 play levels. Level 1 is no-contact practices, trainings only and level 2 is intra-team scrimmages. To comply with these guidelines, each age group will be divided into teams and will only practice and scrimmage within that group. All games will be held at Hunt Club Park Community Center. 

Youth leagues are available for boys and girls in grades 1 - 8. Junior Dribblers (grades 1 -2) is a co-ed league, with grades 3 - 8 participating by grade level. 

If you're a current Gurnee Park District basketball player, coach or parent your schedule can be accessed via Team Sideline.
