What Is Our Mission?
The Illinois Lady Lightning is a competitive girls' basketball program. Founded in 2001, the Illinois Lady Lightning teams compete in suburban Chicago leagues and summer AAU, FTG, MAYB & NAYS action. Our mission is to utilize basketball as a unique and growing opportunity for female student-athletes. We will provide each player with an opportunity to develop their basketball skills and promote sportsmanship, foster good character and teach positive life skills that will help them become personally successful and socially responsible. Player development will be accomplished by practice sessions, scheduling of tournaments and games against the highest level of competition. All coaches will share common beliefs about the coaching of fundamental concepts, therefore providing a continuous and proper learning environment for the players and coaches.
