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
