The Rock Youth Program

The Rock Youth Program Survery

We'd love your thoughts on The Rock program! We're looking to build on year one to make this the best youth program in the state.

WE NEED COACHES!

The Rock program is always looking for coaches. Please take a look at the rosters and note where help is needed and let Coach Clough know if you can help out!


What is it?

Travel basketball program for players in grades 3rd – 8th


Our Youth Program Philosophy

Three-day training camp evaluation
Each player will be thoroughly evaluated by a 12-person committee made up of Rockford Basketball coaches and other members of basketball family.
 
Players will be evaluated in the areas of shooting, passing, dribbling, agility, defensive understanding and game performance
 
Two travel teams per grade level & Saturday Skill School Participants. Players will be placed in one of the following levels. Nobody is “cut."

“THE ROCK” - TEAM ORANGE
Top 10 players from training camp evaluation
 
“THE ROCK” - TEAM WHITE
Players 11-20 from training camp evaluation
 
SATURDAY SKILL SCHOOL STUDENTS
Opportunity for all boys who do not make top 20 at evaluation to partake in skill development with Rockford High School coaching staff. This opportunity allows players to work on their skills and prepare for upcoming Community Ed league after Christmas. Dribbling, passing, shooting and game experience will all be taught.
