The mission of the Elmhurst Sports’ Basketball Program is to provide every child within the Elmhurst community, at every skill level, a safe, fair, fun yet competitive basketball experience. We want all participants to know they can contribute and are part of the Elmhurst Sports Team!
We seek to provide a positive community environment where players, coaches and parents demonstrate the positive values of sportsmanship, respect, friendship and teamwork.
Most of all, we want to create an experience where our children have fun, build friendships and create lasting positive memories that they are still talking about when they are old like their parents!
To be the Sports Organization/Program in Elmhurst by which All Others are Measured. We envision a day where every family and athlete is part of One Community, One Program and One Team.
We want to provide long term consistency within the leadership team, the most automated and functional technology platform, the fairest league procedures and rules and the most memorable community experience for each family and athlete.
Ultimately, we must keep in mind that developing a child’s self-worth is more important than developing their basketball skills. If each parent and child focusses on gaining confidence, having fun, developing skills and winning, in that order, we will have been successful.
Our Community & Volunteers
“It takes a community”. This statement could not be more accurate when describing the effort it takes to operate Elmhurst Sports’ IN-House Basketball Leagues. We are challenged with organizing and running a basketball program with 1,000+ kids, 100+ teams with 100+ practices and 50+ games each week.
This effort would not be possible without the hard work of our dedicated board members and the assistance from volunteering parents/coaches like you!
Thank you all for volunteering your time and effort to make the IN-House Basketball Leagues such a positive experience for the kids in our community. It is truly the collaborative effort between Elmhurst Sports and volunteers like you that make this program so successful.
