Welcome to the home of the Central Illinois Predators, a competitive club basketball program offered through THE GYM of Springfield since 2001. The “Predators” club was established to fill a need in the Central Illinois area for talented girls and boys who want to play at the most competitive levels of basketball. It is our goal to compete with other teams vying for State, Regional and National titles.
The Predators are looking for players who are dedicated to the sport, want to sharpen their skills, and want to compete against the best players at their age level. Our program is open to talented boys and girls in the 4th through 11th grades.
Our teams compete in many state and local tournaments, as well as the U.S. Junior Nationals, Adidas, Nike, AAU and other major exposure events. In the past two seasons, our teams have played in Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Florida, Kansas, Missouri, and Tennessee.
If you are you ready to improve your game, want to play with players that are as good or better than you, and play against some of the best players in the country, then the Predators is the summer basketball program for you!
