Junior Hilltoppers Basketball Program

2022-2023 Basketball Program


The Junior Hilltoppers Basketball Program embodies the values and mission of Marquette High athletics formed in the Jesuit tradition by creating “men for others.” With an emphasis on player growth and development, the Junior Hilltoppers Basketball Program teaches basketball fundamentals and instills life skills including work ethic, fair play, good sportsmanship, morals, and leadership.

Junior Hilltoppers Basketball is a complement to, not a substitute for, the Parochial grade school basketball teams which should remain the 1st priority for boys who have that option available. Junior Hilltoppers Basketball is not an AAU or traveling team program. Games will be played at local area high schools and other venues in SE Wisconsin.

Registration for this year has passed. Please check back for information about 2023-24.

We want to ensure that the program is not cost prohibitive for any family. We are happy to discuss financial assistance on an individualized basis.
