Junior Warrior Boys Basketball Club
The Junior Warrior Boys Basketball Club offers students the opportunity to participate on a club team with other players from within the LLHS Federation who have a similar interest and ability in basketball. The program will support a team at each grade level 5-8.
Practices begin in November after tryouts. The season concludes in late March. Each grade level team carries a squad of up to twelve players. Teams practice at Lakeside or local Federation gyms and participate in tournaments at a variety of different locations throughout the state. The Junior Warrior program is not intended to replace participation with your Federation grade school team. It is intended to offer kids who have the passion, drive, and ability the opportunity to play basketball at a higher level within a Christian environment.
Registration fees are $140 for the first child and $110 for any additional players from the same family. These fees help defray the cost of uniforms, gym fees, and tournament entry fees.
Tryouts for the 2020-21 Junior Warrior Boys Basketball Club teams will be:
Monday, October 26, 6-8 pm
Monday, November 2, 6-8 pm
Players are encouraged to attend both tryouts. All players should fill out a registration form and send it to Coach Jahns at LLHS. All players within the LLHS Federation are encouraged to try out, but we ask players and parents to consider the following expectations before committing to our program:
- 8th-grade players will need to register for their freshman year at LLHS by December.
- 5-7th-grade players should be considering and have a desire to attend LLHS.
- Teams will begin practices in November; players are expected to attend practices unless excused by the coach (grade school practices, games, and school functions will be excused).
- Games consist of selected weekend tournaments or league participation.
- Academic responsibility and staying up to date on homework should be a top priority.
- Families need to consider how participation will impact family time.
All players/families will be contacted by e-mail concerning the selection of each team shortly after the last tryout. Once teams are selected, we will hold a parent meeting to collect the $140 player fee and organize for the season.
Our main purpose and goal is the development of our younger players. Our coaching staff will create a positive learning experience and provide quality instruction at each practice. Players will be challenged to develop their individual skills as players while working together for the common good of their team. Along the way, players will develop great friendships with future classmates and have a great time playing basketball.
Once again, our staff encourages all of you to consider trying out and joining our program. If the player fee hinders a player from trying out for the team, or if you have any further questions or concerns, contact Coach Jahns.

Junior Warriors Youth Football: Unfortunately, the decision has been made by the league to cancel this year's youth football season.
Junior Warriors Youth Football
Unfortunately, the decision has been made by the league to cancel this year's youth football season.
This program gives our area grade school athletes a possible three or four years of tackle football experience prior to high school. It exists to teach players the basic skills of tackle football, teamwork and good sportsmanship, under the guidance of Christian coaches.
All boys, who will be entering 5th, 6th, 7th or 8th grade in the fall of 2019, and are members of our area Lutheran congregations, are eligible to play. This program gives these athletes the opportunity to experience football with fellow Christians.
Assuming numbers are sufficient, we field separate 6th, 7th- and 8th-grade teams. We are members of the Dane and Jefferson County Youth Football League and compete against teams from Jefferson, Lake Mills, Cambridge, Marshall, Columbus, Whitewater and McFarland.
Practices begin Monday August 10, from 5:30–7:30 p.m. and run every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday leading up to the first game on Saturday, August 22. Thereafter, practices are Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5–7 p.m. Games are usually on Saturdays. The season includes 7 games, with the last game scheduled for October 17, 2020. A definitive game and practice schedule is set by the time we mail out forms to registered players in spring.
Participants are required to have an up-to-date physical (within the last two years). Each player is equipped with quality equipment from Riddell. Prospective coaches receive instruction from Lakeside football staff. Sleds, dummies and other appropriate equipment are provided by Lakeside. The Lakeside Lutheran High School athletic trainer is present at all games.
Please also keep in mind there are opportunities for parent involvement on game days, such as being a part of the chain gang. We ask that you consider helping out so that home games can run as smoothly as possible.
After you register, we mail out four forms, including a physical form. They all need to be complete and submitted before equipment is issued.
Register by April 1 before fee increases!
