Your teams practice schedule will be listed in the Game Changer app (see below)
GAME CHANGER APP:
You should have received an email to join the team page on the app, at some point today. So please keep an eye out and make sure to check Spam Mail.
NOTE: If you have played a previous season that we've used Game Changer you may leave the team, so it doesn't show. Please just make sure to follow your Winter 2021-22 team for practices and game times.
The app is something we started using last season and have gotten excellent feedback from the parents. All lines of communication are done through the Game Changer App, coaches’ information, team roster, practice schedule and game times (when available) will all be posted on this app. There is also attendance for events on this app so the coaches can know their rosters each weekend. Also, parents can message with each other and set up carpools, share pictures/videos from the games, etc.
If your child has decided not to play, please let us know so we can finalize rosters.
Director of the Mundelein Feeder program is Hall of Fame coach Dennis Kessel, former head Varsity Basketball coach for Mundelein High School and son IBCA Hall of Fame player Kyle Kessel who played for Mundelein High School. With their level of experience and knowledge for the game they are eager to pass it on to the younger players to prepare them with the fundamentals to make them successful and competitive basketball players.
Our main focus is to provide an opportunity for young boys that will attend Mundelein High School to participate in an organized competitive basketball program. Teams are formed at each grade level from 5th-8th. Our first priority is to help your son improve their skills, build their confidence and become competitive in a game setting. With our great coaching staff and high level of organization we believe we can create a positive basketball experience for all involved.

The head coach will determine playing time. Please note that all players will get a chance to participate in EVERY game. However, when the game is on the line the coach will play the players who are producing the most in that particular game. Playing time may also be determined by each player’s attitude towards the team, participation and overall sportsmanship.
