RMG Winter '14 Travel Team Tryouts now posted under "Fall/Winter 2014"
If your son is serious about understanding the game of basketball under the best coaching around, reaching his full potential and playing with the best players in the North Shore and against the toughest competition in the state, he needs to play with RMG.
There is no program that can boast a coaching staff even close to that of RMG. Not only does the staff consist of former D1 college players, but currently 2 of our coaches are Varsity head coaches and as many of you know Rashid Smith was named ISL Coach of the Year in Illinois last season.
Our primary objective is to teach the game and teach it comprehensively. While we love to win games and tournaments, we want our kids to be clearly ahead of the curve when they reach H.S. both in skill level and basketball IQ.
We often field multiple teams at different age levels. When we evaluate and assign players, we put them in a position where we feel they will improve the most. There are many players that may not be ready for a travel team and there are many programs that will place these players on a roster regardless to fill spots. This usually leads to a bad experience for everyone. Every player develops at his/her own pace and at different times. Just because we decide RMG travel isn't the best option for a player doesn't mean it's time to give up or head somewhere else. We have programs for all ages and all levels that run year round and are equally as important to player development as travel.
There are two components to becoming a solid player. 1. You need to get quality coaching 2. You need to play and practice A LOT. No young player has ever improved by sitting on the bench or simply watching basketball, even if he/she is on the best team around.
While RMG teams are performance based not participation based, we will not place a kid on a roster unless we feel confident he will be able to play substantial minutes in a game. While playing time isn't equal, we want kids to be on the court!

Hope to see you all at tryouts. This should be a great season of basketball!!
