The Sheboygan South Girls Jr. Redwings Basketball program is a youth basketball organization that enables girls in 3rd - 8th grade the opportunity to be on competitive traveling basketball teams. The goal of the program is to learn proper sports skills and techniques in an atmosphere where good sportsmanship, ethics, teamwork, fun, enjoyment and competitiveness are stressed. The program, which is intended for those planning to attend Sheboygan South High School in the future, is the “official feeder program” for Sheboygan South High School and will be an extension of the Sheboygan South High School Girls Basketball program. It is the intent of the Junior Redwings to offer an increased opportunity for players to gain experience playing competitive basketball. Players participating in this program will be able to take part in many competitive basketball games in league and tournament settings.
Lakeshore Basketball League
Games are played within The Lakeshore Basketball League. The LBL goal is to provide a competitive opportunity for 3rd-8th Grade Girls Basketball teams that will reduce travel, keep fees low, layout the full season schedule before week one, and will give more ownership to individual programs and/or host sites.
League Game Dates: League games will be offered November 9, 16, & 23, December 7, 14, & 21, January 4, 11, & 18. The December 29 date will be dependent on interest. The league tournament will take place on January 25.
Practice will begin at the end of October with League/Tournament play beginning the first week of November continuing until the end of February. Most teams continue playing a tournament only schedule in the month of March/early April. Practice time will vary at the beginning of the season but players can expect a minimum of two practices per week, plus games. With the introduction of middle school sports 7th and 8th grade practices may be reduced to one per week.
It is the intent of the program to play in at least two (2) tournaments between November and March. Specific team schedules and participation in tournaments will be decided on a team by team basis considering the dynamics of each team, player and parent participation and coach. Teams can play in additional tournaments at the player’s expense.
Jr. Redwings strive to be a "No Cut" Program
It has been our experience however, that a roster size of 10 players is ideal. Therefore, rosters will be limited to 10 – 12 players per team with player selection at the coaches/Varsity Head Coach’s discretion based upon basketball skills, athletic ability and basketball potential as determined at the evaluation session. When the numbers allow multiple teams will be formed. All players not eligible to participate will be forwarded to the Recreation Department or YMCA for registration.
Jr. Redwings Assistance
Just like on the court you need that assist to make the shot. The Jr Redwing program offers assistance to those that may not be able to afford participating in the program. We offer a reduced cost or no charge for those with financial difficulties. In doing so we ask that you help pay it back with volunteering at concessions stands, tournaments and other events that help raise funds to support the girls basketball program here at South. Please contact Coach Hansen or the coach of your team for more information or to request assistance.
