Cooler temperatures outside mean the start of winter sports for many high school students across the District. Once the temperature drops, the sports move indoors, where the competition heats up. Our winter sports programs feature a variety of sports such as basketball, wrestling, boys swimming, and bowling, etc...

We are known for our spirit around school, routines that incorporate stunts, and precision dance moves. Check us out!
Boys Basketball - Our Varsity Boys Basketball program is home to many current champions and future NBA stars. Teams from our conference have won a state championship each year over the last four years.
There are three levels of high school basketball competition: Freshman, Sophomore, and Varsity. There are also three levels of conference play: red, blue, and green. There are 10 teams within each of the nine conferences.
Conference play - The Red division is the top division and the most competitive. Next up is the Blue division. Teams here can move up to the Red division each year if they win the Blue conference championship. Our newest schools play in the Green division. But similar to their counterparts in Blue, they also have an opportunity to elevate themselves to the next conference level. Upon winning their conference championship, teams here can move up to the Blue conference.
Championships - All of our sophomore and varsity teams compete for the City Championship during the post-regular season city playoffs. One city champion is crowned on each level at the end of the playoffs. Varsity teams then advance to the single elimination state championship playoffs under the direction of the Illinois High School Association.
