Winter Travel


All new 2nd-8th grade players, that did not participate on a travel team during the fall 2023 season with ALL IN, will receive a complete adidas® package. Players will receive a custom uniform, backpack and shooting shirt.

High school boys that participated on an ALL IN travel team during the 2022-2023 school year can also register as a returning player. High school players will begin a new uniform cycle in the Spring 2024 season.


This winter we will be offering four different practice locations.

  • ALL IN North teams will practice in the North Suburbs of Chicago near Deerfield, Highland Park & Northbrook.
  • ALL IN Northwest teams will practice in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago near Arlington Heights & Mount Prospect.
  • ALL IN Lake/McHenry teams will practice in Lake County near Mundelein & Libertyville.
  • ALL IN Chicago teams will practice on the north side of the city.


Each season we will have multiple teams at each grade level. Teams will be split up based on skill level, position and where our staff best believes your child will develop their individual skill set and contribute the most to their respective team.



    Tryouts for the winter season are held at the end of October. Please click here to view the tryout schedule.


    The winter travel season runs from November 5th, 2023 through February 18th, 2024.

    Teams will play in up to 6 local events (usually within an hours drive of the team's practice location). Tournaments are one OR two-day events that are held on Saturdays and Sundays, December through February, and feature 2-3 games each day).


    Players will participate in two team practices each week. Practices can be held on Monday-Friday evenings (between 4:00pm-10:00pm) and/or Saturday-Sunday (between 8:00am-9:00pm). Exact practice days and times for each team will be the same each week and those days/times will be determined when teams are posted. We collect potential conflicts from families before and during the tryout process and do our best to create a schedule that works best for all players on each particular team.


    Our coaches are trained to provide positive and constructive feedback to the players in skills training and during the game. The constant feedback provided by coaches and staff will expedite the process for skill development.

Jr. NBA Flagship Network

ALL IN is 1 of 18 Jr. NBA Flagship Network programs nationwide. The Jr. NBA Flagship Network is comprised of 15 best-in-class youth basketball organizations that share the Jr. NBA’s vision for how the game should be taught and played at the grassroots level, and have committed to pursuing the highest standard of operation in the industry.
adidas® Partnership

ALL IN Athletics is an adidas® sponsored basketball program. We use our relationship with the internationally renowned athletic company to aid our student-athletes in reaching their athletic and academic goals.


ALL IN has partnered with Honest Game to help our athletes track their NCAA academic eligibility requirements - ensuring that they are able to take advantage of their opportunities to compete at the college level.

Player Evaluations

At the conclusion of every season, your child's ALL IN coach will deliver a feedback report utilizing our player evaluation software, TeamGenius. We believe in the ongoing value of offering feedback each season for continuous development.

Flexible Scheduling

We offer flexible practice and tournament scheduling for players that participate in more than one sport during the season. We ask that you provide us with the practice & game schedules for your other team(s) so that we can do our best to plan around them.

Discounted Training

ALL IN travel team players will receive 10% off of skills training throughout the year. Like ALL IN Travel/AAU team practices, ALL IN skills training sessions feature active and dynamic drills to teach game concepts and develop fundamental skills. No sitting on the bench or standing in long lines during drills provides players with the ultimate opportunity to improve their skills over the course of the year. (Discount does not apply to private lessons.)

Positive Coaching

Our coaches are trained to provide positive and constructive feedback to the players in skills training, practices and during the games. The constant feedback provided by coaches and staff will expedite the process for skill development. We believe our coaching staff is unparalleled in their passion, commitment, dedication and knowledge of the game.

Playing Time

ALL IN Travel Basketball is a competitive developmental program. Players are guaranteed at least 40% playing time over the course of a tournament. Although we are trying to compete in tournament games, we believe it is more important to develop all players. By guaranteeing more game reps, we are confident that players will improve their skill set and ability to play the game. (Coaches of elite teams do not have to follow this playing time rule. If your child is being placed on an elite team, you will be notified at the start of the season.)

Appropriate Competition

We will have multiple teams at most grade levels. This allows us to place players appropriately based on their skill level and position. We will work very closely with tournament directors to ensure that your child’s team is playing against other teams that will provide a challenging but competitive matchup.

College Recruiting

The ALL IN staff has worked hard to build meaningful relationships with college coaches and scouting services over the past 19 years. We will ensure that each player is put in a position to receive appropriate college exposure opportunities during AND after the season. We expect multiple players to receive college scholarship offers and collegiate playing opportunities while participating with ALL IN during the spring & summer seasons.

Player Development

The ALL IN goal is to develop each player on and off the court. We will provide a complete basketball experience that stresses: fundamental skills, game concepts, teamwork, and sportsmanship.

Professional Coaching Staff

Every member of the ALL IN coaching staff is a USA Basketball Gold Licensed coach. All coaches must complete three items to become a USA Basketball Gold Licensed coach, which includes an extensive background screening, along with completing two courses. The USA Basketball Coach License provides our staff with the national standard in coach education and safety, along with receiving recognition through USA Basketball. 

PCA Parent Workshop

During the spring season, as part of our partnership with the Jr. NBA Flagship Network, all parents of ALL IN travel team players will be offered a Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) Parent Workshop at no cost. Parents impact their children’s lives like no other people can…in sports as in every other aspect. Parents do best by their children when focusing on sports as a developmental opportunity, rather than a do-or-die, win-at-all-cost proposition. A positive parent is a Second-Goal Parent®, who focuses on that Second Goal, the life lessons. Unconditional love for their children regardless of athletic performance and a relentless commitment to helping them process the ups and downs of youth sports marks the positive sports parent.

Affiliates in Counseling

AIC will be able to provide mental health professionals to assist in meeting our goal of prioritizing full development for all those involved with ALL IN.
