The Streamwood Park District offers a wide range of youth sports and sports leagues throughout the year. Our Youth Sports Leagues are highly reliant on volunteer coaches and team coordinators.
All the necessary equipment and training resources are provided, ensuring that you are prepared to coach and have a fun and rewarding experience.
If you’d like more information on how you can become a volunteer coach, please contact our Recreation Managers.
The Streamwood Park District takes head injuries very seriously.
We strive to educate our volunteer coaches, parents, and participants whenever possible. As a parent of a child who plays youth sports, please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with current information on concussions from the Center for Disease Control’s Head’s Up website.
JR. SABRES BASKETBALL
Teams will practice during the week with games held throughout Illinois on weekends at local travel basketball tournaments from April – July.
Playing time in games is not guaranteed, as this is an advanced-level program with high-level training.
This is a travel tournament basketball team that requires approval from the Jr. Sabres coaches to join after tryouts.
Volunteer coaches will lead one practice during the week and games on Saturdays. This is an intervillage league with games at both Park Place and other local park districts. Practices and games start in early April and schedules will be provided approximately one week before the first game. The final week of the season will be a tournament. Players will need to provide their own knee pads.
New players must purchase a new uniform for $20 (Participants may use the same uniform for both the Fall 2023 and Spring 2024 seasons)
All home games will be played at an SPD field location (Hoosier Grove Park, Canton Middle School, or Commissioner’s Park.) Participants may register at any time at the Park Place registration office. Game schedules are subject to change as a result of the weather and teams are not always guaranteed a full 8 game schedule. Schedules can be found on www.spdathletics.com
U6 has no weekday practices and U8 may practice 1 day during the week with all games played on Saturdays between 9am and 1pm.
U10, U12, U14 Leagues are part of the Intervillage Soccer program and will require some traveling to neighboring towns. Game times will vary between 9am and 4pm on Saturdays. Intervillage teams will practices 1 or 2 times per week depending on availability.
The Streamwood Park District Indoor Soccer League teaches youth soccer skills while promoting good sportsmanship and having fun. This is a perfect way to learn the game of soccer or to freshen up your skills for the outdoor season in the Fall. This is a short season with one practice per week and games on Sundays. We are always looking for volunteer coaches. Soccer players are expected to purchase their own shin guards before the season starts.
The goal of the program is to help each participant experience success as they develop their skills and abilities. An emphasis is placed not only on the basic skills of basketball but also upon the development of important character qualities such as sportsmanship and teamwork. We may need to modify grades of each division depending on enrollment.
Practices will be held at Park Place during the week. Games will be played in Streamwood and other local park districts mostly on Saturdays and Sundays. Practices will be based on the availability of the volunteer coaches.
