Wilmette Wolves Travel

  • Waiver form at the link above must be filled out prior to participation. Needs to be filled out only one time for 2017. Fill out a new waiver if any information has changed.

Wilmette Wolves started over 20 years ago by Wilmette parents that wanted their boys, with a little greater skill set, to play a more competitive brand of basketball than what the park district was offering. 5 Years ago the demand was to have no parent coaches and to bring in professional coaches. Wilmette Wolves decided to contract Hoops4Health and the program has gone to new heights. There have been numerous players who did or are currently playing New Trier Feeder or made New Trier's basketball team whether Freshman, Sophomore, or at the Varsity level. Wilmette Wolves is a great opportunity for your boys to start playing competitive travel basketball in a safe and fun environment. They will learn individual and team basketball fundamentals, as well as learning how to be a good teammate and sportsman.
