Frequently Asked Questions

Does my child have to be registered for me to fill out evaluations?

Yes, your child must be registered the league to fill out an evaluation form. Use the registration links above to find the player evaluation form. This form will allow us to equally distribute our players onto teams.

How will evaluations be rated?

Evaluations will consist of a variety of questions involving height, experience in basketball and travel basketball. All questions will have a rating scale for you to answer. Once you fill out all the questions, we will have you give us an overall score for your participant. This will give us our rating for your participant. We base it on a scale from 1-3. 1 being very good and in the top 15% of the kids in the league, 2 being somewhere in the middle and average with the sport, and 3 being in the bottom 15% of the league.

Why do online evaluations?

Having such a popular and big program we use online evaluations to help us organize our participants into groups based on skill level. Without evaluations we wouldn’t be able to make teams fair. Online evaluations give us the most effective way for us to create teams.

Jodie Harrison Basketball League Information

The Jodie Harrison Basketball League is named in memory of Jodie Harrison, a longtime coach and Athletic Director at Hinsdale Central High School whose life was tragically cut short by in an accident involving an intoxicated driver. The league focuses on Coach Harrison’s teachings of mastering the fundamentals basketball and enjoying the game. The league philosophy focuses on participation, sportsmanship, learning the fundamentals of the game and creating an atmosphere for all players to succeed. This is not a traveling or ultra-competitive league.
The purpose of The Community House youth basketball program is to provide young players with an opportunity to participate in athletics in a fun and educational environment. We believe balanced athletic competition in a team environment promotes sportsmanship, cooperation, leadership skills, and the benefits of exercise and hard work.

The Willowbrook Corner Community

Located in unincorporated DuPage County, near Willowbrook, the neighborhood of Willowbrook Corner came into being as part of public housing relocation programs in the 1970s and 80s.  Because the neighborhood is not served by a municipality it is geographically isolated, and many families here live below the federal poverty level.

The Willowbrook Corner Coalition is a collaboration of community agencies, and we are seeking to grow our Bank Coalition Partnerships. Our mission is to offer equal opportunity for socially and economically disadvantaged groups and to promote self-sufficiency.  Bank Coalition Partners are asked to provide financial education to parents and students, and to provide modest support to The Community House’s administration of the Coalition.

To learn more about the Willowbrook Corner Coalition, please contact The Community House which serves as Coalition Treasurer at 630.323.7500, or visit the Coalition website at www.wccoalition.org.
