Kessel Girls Program

Kessel Heat’s girls program provides fundamental skill development, instruction, and teaching the elements of the game, which will provide student-athletes to take their game to a high level.  

No cuts will be made and there will be no more than 10 players on a team, so plenty of playing time!  Each grade level will have multiple teams. Season runs from the week of March 8th through the last weekend in May. All tournaments are local and played on the weekends.

Possible Practice Locations:

  • Fierce Church (954 West W Braeloch Rd, Grayslake)
