Back for 2021/2022 - Lake Zurich's
community-based, feeder basketball program
for boys in 4th-8th grade.

Welcome to LZ Hoops

After a 1-year hiatus due to Covid-19, Lake Zurich feeder basketball is back! Founded in 2002, LZ Hoops provides community-based basketball skill development and competition. We are a volunteer led, non-profit organization dedicated to bringing growth opportunities to 4th-8th grade boys in the Lake Zurich, IL area.

Our development philosophy is intended to give each player the opportunity to learn, grow, and develop physically, mentally, and socially in order to find success on and off the basketball court—now and in the future.

Tryouts & Season Info

LZ Hoops fully plans on operating for the 2021/2022 winter basketball season. While the year may look different from previous season our new directors and board have been working to provide a quality basketball experience. Some of the changes will include:

  1. Teams will not practice in local middle school gyms. Instead, we will be utilizing local and nearby community gyms.
  2. Games will take place on weekends in league play with other programs. Coaches/Teams will also have autonomy to schedule other games/shootouts as scheduling permits. 

TRYOUTS WILL BE HELD OCT 18-22. There is no cost, but pre-registration is required. No walk-ins.

Tryouts will be held at Foliga YMCA (1025 N Old McHenry Rd, Lake Zurich, IL 60047). Per YMCA policy masks will be required to be worn regardless of vaccination status.

5th grade - Mon, Oct 18, 6-8pm
6th grade - Tues, Oct 19, 6-8pm
7th grade - Wed, Oct 20, 6-8pm
8th grade - Thurs, Oct 21, 6-8pm
4th grade - Fri, Oct 22, 5:15-6:45pm

Please note: We never like to make cuts; however situations may arise where we cannot place every player trying out on a team.
