IBCA Hall-of-Fame Coach John Ulrich's

Fall Basketball Camp

& Midwest Bobcats Travel Basketball 

is back for another session, starting Monday, August 29, 2022.

Come join our tradition of high-level basketball that teaches the best basketball fundamentals

in a hard-working & fun environment! Please register here

The fall session will last 8 weeks: Monday, August 29 - Thursday, October 20.

As usual, we will offer two options for this season:
1. Practices/Training Only (2 practices per week).
2. Practices/Traing + Travel Team (2-3 practices per week plus 4-5 weekend tournaments).

We anticipate high numbers and spots will be limited. Priority will be given to those first registered and past participants, as well.


Monday & Tuesday is for general skill training and practice. Those playing on the travel team will have an additional practice on either Wednesday or Thursday nights (see schedule below). That practice will be used to specifically prepare for in-game situations and scenarios.

Players will frequently be split up based upon current skill level and not necessarily grade level. If playing on the travel team, the first 3 weeks of practices will be used to assess which team would be most appropriate for your child, based on their current skill level. If your child is a beginner, please have them attend the session for one grade younger than where they are currently.


Monday/Tuesday @ Immanuel Lutheran, Palatine

4:45 - 5:45 pm     2nd-4th Boys & Girls

5:45 - 7:00 pm     5-6th Boys

**Grades are based off the current grade your child is finishing.**


Midwest Bobcats Travel

Those playing travel will play in one-day tournaments on either Saturday or Sunday (based on player availability). As we have done in the past, we will use the first half of the session to focus on skill development and team preparation. The second half of the session, we will play in highly competitive tournaments. The reason for this is that players improve way more during practice than during games and our main goal is to help players get better!


Single-day tournaments most likely on Saturday or possibly Sunday (based on player availability) in Dundee, Schaumburg, Wheaton, Waukegan or Romeoville.

   **It is okay if you cannot make every day/session or need to leave early/come late. What is most important is that your 

    child is in the gym as much as possible; improving their skills as a player and confidence as people.**



Midwest Bobcat Travel Team: $395

Practice/Training Only: $245

Travel Uniform (if needed): $60

**IF your family is struggling financially and cannot afford it, PLEASE reach out and communicate that to us. We can work something out! We NEVER want money to be the reason someone that wants to be a good player cannot develop their skills!**
