Greetings Current and Former Upward/Onward/Forward Basketball Families,

Basketball Leagues for Grades 7-12 are now registering at Immanuel Church in Gurnee. Practices and league play will run early February through the middle of March 2018, concluding before Spring Break. All 2018 games and practices will be at the Immanuel Church gym, 2300 N Dilleys Road, Gurnee, IL.

Onward (Grades 7-8) and Forward (Grades 9-12) are the same leagues with the same leadership as have been running in Grayslake, but with a new venue for the 2018 season. Both leagues feature strong fundamental skill development, competitive play, separate boys' and girls' divisions, certified IHSA Referees, season-ending tournaments, and a Christ-focused gym atmosphere.

The Awards and Championship Tournament on March 17 are a full day of events, and we ask that you only register for the league if you can play that day. Absences on Tournament Day are extremely unfair to teammates, so we want to ensure that all players are present for their tournament games.

Looking forward to great season!

All for Jesus,

Upward/Onward/Forward Basketball of Lake County

2300 N. Dilleys Road

Gurnee, IL 60031
