BOYS Basketball | Varsity

Welcome to Joliet Central High School Boys Basketball  for 2018-19. 

My name is Lawrence Thompson Jr. and I am the Head Boys Basketball Coach. 

This is now our tenth season as Joliet Central and we are a proud member of the Southwest Prairie Conference. 

Our staff will continue to build a basketball program that stresses fundamentals on the court and success in the classroom. Players at all levels are expected to be above average students and productive members of the community.  It is the programs goal that each member of the Joliet Central Boys Basketball program graduates high school and attends college. 

With the current demands of the conference and the competitive schedule in which the team participates, means that each player will have an intense amount of demands placed on them.  All levels will practice everyday and attendance is mandatory. This practice schedule and season demands a partnership between parents and coaches and this collaboration is necessary for the program to reach any and all goals. 

I am looking forward to the season ahead and hope to see many STEELMEN Basketball fans at all of our contests. 

 

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at (815) 483-9328 or email me at lthompson@jths.org 

Sincerely yours,

Lawrence Thompson Jr. 

Head Boys Basketball Coach
