Storm Program

Storm Basketball is dedicated to providing a competitive basketball program for girls in grades 4-8. Our coaching sta_ includes former collegiate athletes and experienced coaches who know what it takes to reach the next level. The program gives participants an opportunity to develop their skills and reach their goals. Player development, team concepts, strength and conditioning, speed/agility and mental performance are just a few of the areas that will be developed.

Program Goals
  • Skill Development
  • Promote Sportsmanship
  • Provide Tools to Achieve Goals
  • Challenging Training
  • Competitive Environment
  • Positive Attitude

Storm Basketball and Winter New Trier Girl's Feeder are working together to field teams for the Feeder program. This co-sponsored team will allow girl's to play for their community while still being a part of the New Trier Feeder program. The 4th grade teams will play in an alternate league. The 5th-8th grade teams will play in the Northern Illinois Girls Feeder Basketball Association (NIGFBA).

Practices and Games

All teams will practice twice a week from October through March. Practices will emphasize skill development and team play. All teams will play 20+ games, which will include tournaments and league play. Tournaments are relatively local with travel time typically one hour and not exceeding two hours.
