Basketball

Our in-house program caters to 1st grade through High School (novices to seasoned players). 1st and 2nd Grade teams are randomly selected, balancing the number of boys and girls on each team. All other teams are formed following an evaluation of player’s skills and then a coaches blind draft. A maximum of 10 players are assigned to each team. Each player will receive a team t-shirt and must wear black shorts. The season includes a 10 game season for each age group (1st and 2nd grade play 8 games).

Soccer Leagues (Fall & Spring)

The soccer program is designed to appeal to a wide range of soccer abilities, from introducing the game to novices with no prior experience, to challenging more experienced players. The following co-ed divisions are available:  Kindergarten, 1st Grade & 2nd Grade.  3rd/4th Grade, 5th/6th Grade, 7th/8th Grade and 9th-12th Grade are gender specific. 

Teams are newly formed for the Fall season. Fall players return to the same team in the Spring if they choose to play.  New Spring players are added to existing Fall teams, or new spring teams are created.  Teams wear professional looking soccer uniforms (included in the registration fee). 

Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd Graders receive a new uniform in the Fall and Spring.  3rd-8th Grade players wear the same uniform for both Fall and Spring.

In-house games are all played locally at Bartlett fields. Inter-Village divisions require teams to travel up to 20 minutes away to play surrounding communities such as Carol Stream, Elgin, Bloomingdale, Hanover Park, Hoffman Estates, and Streamwood.

House Softball:

The softball program is designed to appeal to a wide range of softball abilities, from introducing the game to novices with no prior experience, to challenging more experienced players. Teams are newly formed for the Summer season. Bartlett will be playing in a league with West Chicago, Batavia, and Geneva. Age levels will coincide with ASA age regulations. Fall players return to the same team in the Summer if they choose to play.  New Fall players are added to existing Summer teams or new Fall teams are created. Each player will receive a sleeveless professional jersey and matching socks (included in the registration fee).  Due to the size and nature of the program, we do not accept carpool or friendship requests nor can we guarantee coach requests. The Summer season includes a 10-12 game season for each division, followed by single elimination playoffs for 10U, 12U, 14U, and High School. The Fall season includes an 8 game season for each division, followed by single elimination playoffs for divisions 10U, 12U, 14U, and High School.

Girls Volleyball Leagues

Girls volleyball is for 5th/6th Grade and 7th/8th Grade players and we have a Fall and a Spring season.  The seasons consist of approximately 10 practices and 6 games against other Bartlett teams as well as Carol Stream and Streamwood Park District teams.  The teams are coached by paid coaches, not parent volunteers.  Practices focus on passing, setting, serving, spiking, blocking and digging skills as well as teaching game strategies, including learning positions, rules and rotations.  This is a fun but competitive environment.  It is recommended that players have some volleyball experience when registering for the league.  A league t-shirt and participation medal are included in the registration fee.
