Northbrook Junior High's 6th, 7th, & 8th grade basketball teams are interscholastic programs for girls and boys. The teams practice or play a game virtually every school day from the start of November through the last week of January. Due to gym constraints, practices vary from day to day and they may run from either 3:45 to 5:15pm or 5:15 to 6:45 p.m. Coaches will provide their players with practice schedules and game schedules. Players must provide their own transportation home from practices. The improvement of skills, effort, sportsmanship and teamwork will be stressed in practices as well as in games. Tryouts for both teams will take place during the last week in October and the first week of November.
***All students who will be participating in interscholastic sports are required to have a sports physical exam by a licensed physician, annually. The sports physical is good for only one (1) year from the date of the exam, and must be on file in the junior high office prior to tryouts.***
