Excellence In Player Development

Lifezone Sports Academy's basketball program is centered around a core methodology for excellent player development. 

Our full-time and guest coaches undergo robust screening - as well as continuing education to ensure they are the best in the market. 

We also ensure that programming is offered for every level of interest and skill - boys and girls.


Programming For Every Age and Skill Level 

For Beginners (Ages 6+)

Our Lil Hoopers class is based on curriculum designed for ages 6-12. The program helps players fall in love with the game while advancing their skills through fun experiences. A convenient month-to-month subscription with the option for "drop in" classes gives each family flexibility and value. [More]

For Intermediate Players

The LZ360 Developmental League (also called D League) is all about getting players boosting skill while giving them opportunities to compete and display their new abilities. Professional coaches ensure there is quality training. All games take place at LZ360 (no travel). Curriculum is designed to take each player to the next level no matter where they start off. More]

For Competitive/ Elite Players

The best 8U through 17U players in the market are selected through a formal tryout process to compete locally, regionally and nationally. Most athletes train year-round to compete at this level. Illinois Magic is our official travel basketball program.  You can find their seasonal basketball tryouts through the link below. [Spring Travel Tryout Info]


Camps & Clinics

Our camps and clinics are designed with development of each player in mind. In a larger setting (more than 8 players) we look to provide skills sessions that cater to a large group. Whether you are just getting started in basketball - or an elite player looking to get some additional training, this is the place to come. [More]

Supplemental Training

Primarily focused on our intermediate and competitive players, this weekly supplemental class provides intense training with the best coaches in the market.  Our NCAA Certified Staff lead training every week. Classes take place on Sunday evenings.

Satellite Programs

More and more people come to us every day asking for programs closer to their homes.  We have designed our curriculum here at Lifezone360 to be duplicated at satellite locations in more convenient locations for our working families. [More]

Open Gym

We have set aside hundreds of hours every year for our players to improve on their own.  Each week you will find nearly 10 hours of open court time per week that is at your son or daughter's disposal.  This court time is free for any player who is currently enrolled with our travel teams.


At Lifezone360 we host some of the most prestigious events for travel basketball in the Chicagoland Market. We have partnered with some of the biggest names in the sport to bring amazing events to you. More info coming soon!

Adult Leagues

At Lifezone360 we host Men's and Women's adult leagues throughout the year.  With our fully stocked bar and Brick's Pizza Restaurant in our facility, it makes for a great basketball experience.

What Others Are Saying

For the money, there's no better value we've found in the market. Your facilities are amazing and energizing. The coaches are great. I feel so happy my son is playing in this program with you. Thank you for all you guys are doing!

My daughter just got back from her first camp at Lifezone and she was so excited. She made new friends and the coaches were so much fun she said. Please keep hosting more camps like this one. We've been doing park district programs for a couple of years and it always feels like a let down in quality.
