5th Grade Boys




The Central Illinois Predators will be holding basketball tryouts for their Boys’ 5th Grade Club Team from 6 – 8 PM on Tuesday January 10, 2017 and from 10 am – Noon on Saturday January 14, 2017 both dates will be at Cantrall Intermediate School. All current 5th grade boys are invited to tryout; the roster will consist of 8-10 players. Depending on the skill level and the number of players who tryout, we may have a second team this year.

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. Dan Reynolds will be the coach for the upcoming season. If you have questions, Coach Reynolds can be reached at 217-685-8804, or dreynolds26@hotmail.com.

The Central Illinois Predators is a competitive club basketball program offered at THE GYM of Springfield. The 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 team will compete in tournaments throughout the state and Midwest. Each player who makes the team is expected to commit through the summer.

Club Fees will be approximately $400-$500 per player and the fee will be due as soon as the player makes the team. Actual fees will depend on the number of players on the team and the number of tournaments entered; the exact schedule will be set once the team is formed and player conflicts are known. Club fees cover coaching, practice facilities, two sets of uniforms, team equipment, and tournament costs. Hotel and travel accommodations are the responsibility of the individual not the club.

All fees are non-refundable and will not be prorated. There is a Tryout Fee of $20.00 per person and the registration form is available on-line at www.predatorsbball.com, or at THE GYM of Springfield 1823 Camp Lincoln Rd. Springfield, IL 62707. The registration form and fee are due at the tryouts. For questions call Steve at (217) 522-7122 or email stevek@thegym-il.com.
