Who We Are!

The Illinois Rockets has been the premier youth travel basketball club in the Naperville area and Chicago’s western suburbs since 2000.  Our coaches emphasize quality skill development and prepare our players for the next level!

Illinois Rockets- Parents, Players and Families:

Yesterday Governor Pritzker issued the new youth sports guidelines which go into effect on August 15th.  For anyone that did not see the rules it currently allows for team basketball to include skill development trainings and intra-team scrimmages.  It does not allow teams to play other teams as of now.  The Illinois Rockets have been very conservative with our approach to basketball and I am proud that the new guidelines issued will not interfere with the upcoming fall season should the state meet the required guidelines.

As it stands, Rockets fall teams typically start the first week of October with practices that involve skills and scrimmages, both of which are currently approved under the new guidelines. The anticipation is that basketball will be approved for both games and tournaments starting in November.

Continuing on the fall teams, our tryouts have been completed and we had an astounding 94% return rate this year for our existing teams while adding new teams at the lower levels.  This returning player rate is indicative of the programs commitment to its core values. The Rockets brand continues to grow and produce exceptional players with great skillsets, maturity, and character both on and off the court. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate the landscape of youth basketball and its frequent policy/rule changes. Feel free to reach out and call or email your coaches directly if you have any other questions or concerns.

Thank you to all the families and coaches and sponsors that supported our Not-For-Profit Organization during this time.  We are excited about the opportunity to play in the fall provided the guidelines are met.
