Intervillage registration deadline Nov. 9; house league registration ends Nov. 23
Bensenville, Ill.— The Bensenville Park District offers several options for kindergarten through eighth grade boys and girls interested in playing basketball, including co-ed in-house basketball for those in grades K-4 and intervillage play for boys and girls grades 3-8.
Intervillage League play is broken into three separate grade levels for both boys and girls teams: grades 3-4, 5-6, and 7-8. All players will be evaluated and placed on a team. Evaluations take place within a week of the Wednesday, November 9, registration deadline. Practices will begin in December, and games against other villages begin in January, running through March. Home games are played at the Deer Grove Leisure Center, and road games are played in nearby villages. The fee of $115 for residents ($138 non-residents) includes a team uniform.
The deadline to register for co-ed in-house (Bensenville Sports Conference) play is Wednesday, November 23. Teams are broken down in four grade levels. All games will be played at the Deer Grove Leisure Center.
Kindergarten co-ed basketball games take place between the hours of 2:30 and 5 p.m. Saturdays beginning January 7. Practices take place before games. The fee is $45 for residents ($55 for non-residents) and includes a team t-shirt and awards.
First grade and second grade co-ed basketball teams are formed by coaches and the supervisor of athletics. Practices begin in December, and games are played between the hours of noon and 2:30 p.m. Saturdays, beginning January 7. The $85 fee ($110 for non-residents) includes a team t-shirt and awards for top finishers.
Co-ed teams made up of third- and fourth-graders will be formed by the athletic supervisor and coaches after the registration deadline, and practices will begin in December. The games will take place between 5:45 and 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday evenings beginning January 5. The fee is $85 ($110 for non-residents) and includes a team t-shirt and awards for top finishers. Fourth graders enrolled at this level may still register to play in Intervillage League games on Saturdays.
