South Suburban Wildcats of Lincoln-Way Travel Basketball Organization: Lincoln-Way Feeder Program

The South Suburban Wildcats organization was started to give girls the opportunity to play travel basketball while keeping in mind that many of these girls also play other sports. We understand their need to concentrate on school, enjoy family time and realize that it is impossible to give up every weekend to basketball. The organization was started in March of 2007, an idea that ultimately transformed into the South Suburban Wildcats. The organization was built on the premise that all costs would be split evenly, including tournaments and games. The organization is a member of the AAU (Amateur Athletic Union) and participates in the top area tournaments. Our Fall/Winter session that runs from October or December to March includes girls' teams at the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade levels. We practice and play home games in the surrounding Lincoln-Way area. We try to seek out as many local tournaments as possible. However, there are several located in the North Suburbs and just east of the border into Indiana.    

In 2011, for the first time in the Wildcats history, Lincoln-Way area boys were given an opportunity to play for one of Illinois’ top travel programs. The Wildcats continue to field boys’ teams at the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade levels in addition to carrying on a long tradition of elite girls teams at the 4th, 5th, 6th 7th and 8th grade levels.

The South Suburban Wildcats organization is a positive and respected program choice for girls and boys competitive travel basketball. We strive for the best, but realize the importance of family and school. Our programs are restricted to girls and boys living within the Lincoln-Way District 210 residential boundaries, making the Wildcats a feeder program for the Lincoln-Way district. We have the full support of the administration and coaches of all area 210 schools. We are and will continue to be an independent organization, knowing that staying focused on individual attention is very important to development and understanding the game.  

We offer the highest quality programs, with a cost structure that sets a new standard for travel sports.

WILDCATS ANNOUNCE PLANS FOR SPRING 2015



The South Suburban Wildcats organization is gearing up to launch three girls teams that will compete in the spring/summer AAU season.

 

Historically, Wildcats teams were restricted to those girls residing within the Lincoln-Way residential boundaries, but our spring programs are open to all girls who seek to play for a competitive program.

 

The Wildcats will continue to staff their teams with dedicated volunteer coaches with years of proven travel basketball success and experience. This means an opportunity to play for a proven program at a lower cost.

 

The Wildcats have always catered to multi-sport athletes, so the organization and coaches offer flexibility and will work around conflicts as long as it doesn’t hurt the team.

 

This season the Wildcats will offer the following girls teams: Wildcats 2017 (current 10th graders)

Wildcats 2018 (current 9th graders)

Wildcats 2019 (current 8th graders)

 

These teams will practice 2 times per week in the Lincoln-Way area and play in local tournaments and other AAU tournaments.

 

While there are many programs to choose from, few have the history and track record of the South Suburban Wildcats.

 

Tryouts will be held on Tuesday, March 17 at Mary Drew (20130 Rosewood Drive, Frankfort, IL 604230) from 6:30pm – 8:00pm.

 

Girls should pre-register for tryouts through the following link: Tryout Registration
