What Is Basketball?

One of the most popular sports in Illinois, basketball provides competition for both teams and individuals. Five-on-five team competition is available in Junior, High School and Senior Male (Coed) and Senior Female age groups. Individuals can compete in the Basketball Individual Skills Competition to develop basic basketball skills. Events include the Target Pass, 10 Meter Dribble and Spot Shot events.

Athletes in Illinois who participate in team competition, compete locally at a Region Qualifying event. Individual Skills participants also compete locally in Region Qualifying events. Teams or individuals who win a gold medal are eligible to advance to the State Basketball Championships held in Normal in March.
