Basketball Program

Where there is THUNDER…there is always 

Lightning Girls 



Orland Park Lightning Basketball Program is unique. We are an OYA girls Rec. based Travel Program. Our program is for girls in Grades 4th - 8th who possess both the desire and ability to learn and play basketball at a more competitive level than that of our Rec. program. Please understand that unlike our Recreational program the Lightning program does NOT guarantee equal playing time. Our game season begins in mid-November and ends in mid- March
