Girls Basketball Overview


Elm Middle School's girls basketball program features two separate teams: a 6th/7th-grade team and an 8th-grade team. Students must try out for their respective squads.

Practice begins in January, followed by a season that spans February and March. The season culminates in a tournament that determines the Leyden-Norwood Athletic Conference (LNAC) champions for 6th/7th grade and 8th grade.

Students who participated in a fall sport do not need to submit a new pre-participation physical exam form or a new concussion information sheet if they want to play a winter sport.

Our home games are played at Elm Middle School, 7606 W. Cortland St., Elmwood Park. Regular-season games begin at 4 p.m. Directions to other LNAC schools are here.
