About the event

Athletes, ages 8 and up, who are interested in learning and competing in basketball skills (passing, catching, dribbling and shooting) may sign up for Special Olympics Individual Skills Basketball. We will have an informational meeting Monday, October 18th at 7:00PM on Zoom. The link is below. At the meeting we will review paperwork, practice/competition info, and rules/policies. Even if you are only interested in more information, I encourage you to attend the meeting. Registration will close October 19th. The roster will be capped at 24 athletes, and precedence will be given to athletes returning from 2019. Athletes new to this sport will be placed on a waiting list on a first come, first served basis. I will begin pulling from the waiting list on October 20th as long as there is room on the roster.

Practice will take place once a week at Shabbona school gym at 725 School St. in Morris (enter door 18 at the back of the school) from 6:30-7:30PM, starting Monday, October 25th. Our regional competition will be on January 23, 2022 in Evergreen Park, and State competition for those who qualify will be March 11-13, 2022. TRANSPORTATION TO PRACTICES AND COMPETITIONS ARE THE ATHLETE'S RESPONSIBILITY. Special Connections will cover the cost to participate this year. Completed paperwork is due by October 22nd or you will not be able to attend practice. Medical forms must be valid through March 14, 2022. If you are not sure if you will need a new Medical, then I can look that up for you. New Medicals are due to me by November 11th or you will not be able to compete. LATE PAPERWORK WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, NO EXCEPTIONS!!

6 Volunteer Assistant Coaches will be needed at practice and competitions. If you would like to help, please attend the zoom meeting. Knowledge of basketball is not required.
