Illinois Lady Lightning plays on - select 40 circuit

Select 40 is the premier Girls AAU Circuit in the United States.  Illinois Lady Lightning was one of the first clubs invited in the 2022 inaugural season of the Select 40 Circuit.  Since then, the circuit has grown and is home to the top 40 AAU Clubs all over the country, the top tournament schedule and attracts the top college coaches.  

Select 40 has offered an incredible opportunity and exposure for our High School athletes.  We look forward to playing in front of full baselines and top competition in 2024.  We will have Select teams at the 14U-17U age groups.
