KMGBC requires that all families put in volunteer hours. We need volunteers to help raise money during our Lake Country Girls Basketball League that we host, and the Sweetheart Basketball Tournament that we host. These are the two main sources of income for our Club that allow us to keep the annual fees low and don't require us to do any fundraising!
This year, each family has the option to either volunteer for two shifts in the concessions at the LCGBA games on a Sunday between now and the February. OR for one shift at the Sweetheart Tournament in February. Volunteering for either event will fulfill your volunteer requirement for KMGBC.
You must be at least 14 years old to volunteer in the front concessions, and at least 18 years old to volunteer in the food prep in the back.
Thank you for your continued help and support to keep this Club a success!

We would like to welcome Frank Cuda as the clubs new Secretary, and Marty Vosburg as the clubs new Treasurer. Both come with a lot of experience and ideas for the club.
We would like to thank Vaughn Torres for her years of service as Secretary, and Corinne Vertz as Treasurer for all the years she served. It was wonderful working with such a great group of individuals.
The KMGBC is designed to provide girls who reside or attend a school within the KM District the opportunity to participate in a basketball program that has a higher level of skill and competition for a select program. We encourage and welcome all girls to tryout and teams will be formed at the 3rd - 8th grade levels.
The Club Program’s efforts are ultimately directed at the development of players for a successful high school program. Based on this objective, the Board supports and works directly with the Kettle Moraine High School Girls Basketball Program and the coaches.
We believe that basketball is a fun game, and there is no reason why basketball at this level should be anything but fun. We have expectations of our players and coaches and we are committed to developing our teams and program. However, we will not lose sight of the fact that enjoying ourselves in the process is central to what we’re doing.
We believe that the development of our athletes will be best served with hard work, dedicated coaching, and a positive athletic experience. We look to develop our players on the court with discipline, knowledge of the game and skill development and off the court by promoting positive life experiences, dedication to the community and respect for our families.
PRACTICE AND GAME EXPECTATIONS
Each team will have two scheduled practices a week. In a select program, the girls are expected to attend each practice. The intention is to provide skill improvement on an individual level as well as team skills and the ability to work together.
These practices are an essential part of the select program and lead to improvement in league games and tournaments play over the course of a season as the individuals improve and the team learns to play together. Absences should be shared with the coaching staff so that practice plans can be adjusted accordingly.
Teams will play a league double header either every Saturday or Sunday, depending on the league. Times vary, but usually in the morning to mid afternoon.
Teams also participate in about 4-5 tournaments a season including our KM Sweetheart tournament that our club hosts. Families are required to help work at the tournament to make it as successful as it's been for all of these years. This tournament is our main source of revenue to help reduce the club registration fees for your daughter.
