Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) – FCA Basketball Teams

Welcome to FCA Basketball!

If you are unfamiliar with FCA Basketball you may have questions.  If you are unable to find your answer here, don’t hesitate to contact us a [email protected].

Do kids have to be from a certain church or denomination?
. The FCA Basketball is for any athlete, coach, fan or friend of the basketball community who loves basketball and has an openness or desire to grown in his/her relationship with God. FCA is committed to developing “three-dimensional” athletes and coaches who want to fulfill their potential physically, mentally and spiritually.

Do kids have to be from a certain town or park district?
. All FCA Basketball practices and home games, however, are held at Wheaton Academy in West Chicago, IL.

What teams will FCA Basketball have for the 2023-24 winter season?
Traditionally we have had one team at 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade levels.  We are open to having more than one team at these grade levels, it really depends on the number of registered players and coaching staff.

What if my player also plays for their school team?
Not a problem.  Every year we have quite a few players 5th grade and older that play for both their school team and FCA Basketball.  We understand that your school team may be your first priority.  FCA Basketball offers premier coaching, as well as practice and game times that rarely conflict with school schedules.  FCA Basketball helps players develop skills and IQ that transfer to any system and offers a different level of competition for many players.

What is the cost of FCA Basketball?
We offer year-round programming, so the costs vary based on the program. Please refer to the registration page for details about the programs we are currently taking registrations for.

What does a team schedule look like for the 2023-24 Winter season?
Practice will be Monday and Thursday evenings; we are currently working on additional gym times.   We are scheduled off for Thanksgiving week and Christmas break.

DYTBL games vary, usually 2 games per week, one home and one away.  Occasionally, we would play 1 or 3 games in a given week.   

When are evaluations held for team selection?
Evaluations will be held the last week of August.

How many players on a team?
8-10 players per team depending on the turnout.

How are teams selected?
Teams are selected during the tryouts based upon skill and ability when compared to their peers.  Evaluations will focus on the fundamental skills of basketball. We will focus on skills like ball handling, passing, shooting, defense, footwork, rebounding, etc. Most importantly, we will focus on how willing your son is to work, listen to instruction, and be a team player.  Evaluations are conducted by FCA Basketball coaches and helpers.

How is playing time determined? 
One of our goals is to provide opportunity for all players to develop in game time experiences.  Assuming players are participating in practices, paying attention and working hard at improve at each practice, our position on playing time is as follows that our coaches will play every player in every game. There should be no games that a player fully participating does not have a chance to play.  Individual games may be affected by match ups or composition of our own players.  NO guarantee exactly equal playing time during a single game.  This is too hard to manage.  Coaches understand that game time is earned and this is competitive play.  

Length of Season
Preseason training begins in September, regular season practice begins in late October through February.  
Attendance at practices is important and fully expected.
