Northridge Feeder Basketball
High schools organize Feeder Basketball teams of 6th-8th graders to compete against each other’s Feeder teams. The Northridge teams will play other competitive feeder schools in the Northwest suburbs. Games will be both at home (at Northridge), and away (at the other high schools). The goal is to introduce players to Northridge who may consider attending and playing at our high school. Of course, there is no obligation to apply with us in the future, and this provides a great opportunity to improve your basketball skills.
