Purpose: The Junior Chargers basketball program gives Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School (KMLHS) Federation grade school students an opportunity to play select basketball against other local, state wide, and sometimes out of state teams. The program seeks to develop the skills and abilities necessary to play the game of basketball at a higher level in a Christian environment. In addition, the Junior Chargers will promote KMLHS by fostering Christian fellowship on the team.

Practice and Tournaments: The number of tournaments, tournament sites, practice dates, and practice sites is at the discretion of the individual coach. Practices can begin any time after the team has been selected. Players are expected to be at practice, but when circumstances prevent them from attending they are asked to communicate this with their coach. Tournament play usually begins in January and lasts through early April though in some years teams may start play earlier or extend a little longer into April depending on tournament availability.\

Teams are not limited in practice dates or times, but 2 practices per week is the norm with practices lasting for 1 1/2 – 2 hours. Teams are generally encouraged to seek out a minimum of five tournaments including the Junior Charger tournament. Depending on the individual team this number can be increased or decreased at the discretion of the coach.

There will be a period where the Junior Charger season will overlap the grade school Federation season. Players will be told and should understand that if a conflict exists between the two that priority should be given first to the grade school activity or event.
