The Chicago LockDown is a youth basketball program serving players from the Kindergarten through High School.
Skill Development training and leagues are available year-round for all our players.
For our 2017-2018 Fall/Winter LockDown Season, we are forming multiple teams at each grade school level, 4th Grade through 8th Grade. LockDown has an Academy Program for our 3rd Grade Boys and our 3rd and 4th Grade Girls to further develop their skills. The Jump Start League is the perfect basketball introduction for our 1st and 2nd grade players.
Below is a list of coaches and tentative assignments for the 2018 spring season. This list is to give players an insight into the depth of the quality of coaching talent assembled. This list is not final and assignments may be adjusted.
