Girls Jr. Nix



The Luther Preparatory School Junior Nix Program provides WELS Lutheran grade school upper grade students the opportunity to participate in an advanced level basketball program within a Christian environment. 5th through 8th grade girls who currently attend a WELS Lutheran grade school and are considering Luther Prep as their high school are invited to attend tryouts to play on this team this Fall. 


A tryout session has been scheduled at Luther Prep Gymnasium from 4:30pm-6:00pm on Sunday, September 20. An email with team decisions will be sent out during the week following the tryout.

Typically, the Junior Nix will compete in the Eastern Suburban Youth Basketball League (ESYBL) on Saturdays from the last week of October thru mid-December (skipping Thanksgiving weekend). The league is composed mostly of local area high school junior teams and there are usually there are 2-3 games each Saturday. This year, we have the desire to play, but because of the impact of coronavirus we are unsure at this time how the season will unfold.


Weekly practices are tentatively scheduled for early Sunday evenings beginning September 27 and continuing throughout the season, and additional practices may be added. 


If your child is offered and accepts a spot on the team, attendance at all Junior Nix practices / games is expected unless excused by the coach. However, school and church events should take priority over Junior Nix practices and games.


There is no cost to tryout. If your child is selected for the team, a payment of $75 will be required for each player to cover league entry fees, team expenses, a reversible game jersey, and a personalized warm-up t-shirt. 

If your daughter is interested in trying out, contact Junior Nix coach Will Wendorff at will.wendorff@gmail.com before Friday, September 18 to let us know she will be attending the tryout and for a waiver that will need to be submitted at the time of the tryout.
