Windy City Fieldhouse information

The Play Hard Hoops 2021 Fall League will return to its regular format this coming season after running scrimmage pods for nearly 150 boys and girls players in adjusting to the health measures for 2020. This year, individuals are placed into balanced teams across each division for a full league season that includes 4 weeks of regular season games and 2 weeks of playoffs. September 12th will be skills focused with an evaluation period to place players within their teams**. Please note that week #1 on Sept 19th will be pre-season games for any final team changes to balance the group. Beginning September 26th, teams and their assigned PHH coach will be set to play the 4 weeks of regular season with playoffs beginning October 24th and finals being played November 7th.

K-6th grade leagues will have a 30-35 minute skills and game concepts portion to further enhance our players' development and understanding of the game. This will be followed by two 20 minute halves with our PHH coaches assigned to teach+direct gameplay for the team. 7th-8th grade leagues will be game-only leagues where PHH coaches will instruct through game play.

In Winter, the boys and girls' team practices will begin week of October 25th after tryouts on weekend of October 9/10 and make-up date on October 14th. Our Fall League will also serve as an evaluation from our coaching staff for those we believe ready to join our most competitive program.
