The Nomads Basketball program has been participating in competitive travel basketball in the Western Suburbs of Chicago since 1996. The program provides its players with skill development and ample playing time in order to best prepare them to play high school basketball.


Nomads teams play between 30 - 40 Conference and Tournament games per season between the months of November and March. These games are supported by weekly practices (2x's to 3x's per week).





We hope that our Nomads Basketball community is doing well and staying safe and healthy during these times.  As we did last season, we will be making decisions based on applicable state and local guidelines, as the safety and health of our players, families and coaches are our top priority.  As the country and state return to greater normalcy, we are hopeful that the 2021 season will similarly operate in normal fashion.

At this time, we are holding tryouts at the Woodridge Athletic Recreation Center (Arc) in August:

4th Grade - August 18th and 23rd (6:10-7:30 pm)
