Our Mission

Legends Youth Basketball provides complete team and individual skill training opportunities at an affordable rate for up and coming Illinois basketball players.

What We Offer

Legends Youth Basketball offers a variety of basketball programs for K-12 athletes seeking a better understanding of the game.  Led by the vision of Coach Steve Krebs, Legends prioritizes the fundamentals and cornerstone values of the game of basketball in order to create a solid foundation for individuals to build their playing careers upon.

Travel teams are offered during the Spring, Summer, and Fall seasons for individuals looking to compete consistently throughout the year.  Legends Basketball players typically reside in Lake or McHenry Counties of Illinois where practices are located, but welcome all individuals willing to participate.  Travel teams practice weekly during their respective seasons and compete in 6-8 tournaments on average.

Legends Basketball also offers annual Little Legends Basketball Camps for students of the game ranging from Kindergarten through 4th Grade.  These developmental camps are led by former and current Legends players and coaches, where participants can learn the basics in a fun and focused environment.


"I played Legends from Fourth Grade until I graduated from high school. It was an amazing experience. Steve is the best coach I’ve ever had the pleasure of playing under and some of the closest friends I’ve made was from Legends. I consider Coach Krebs and his family, family friends. During my time with Legends, we made amazing memories at every tournament that we travelled to. I highly recommend Legends for any player serious about becoming a better player and more importantly, a better person.

"Spent four seasons with the Legends from 2006 to 2010 and gained essential experience with great players from the northwest suburban area! Great coaches, great families involved and endless memories traveling with them to tournaments around the country. Highly recommend for any level of player." 

~ Karl Nettgen, Legend Player 2006-2010

"My son just started with Steve and the Legends over the summer, should of joined sooner and will now be with the program for as long as we can. Great coaches and great parents - couldn’t ask for more. He has been able to experience more in the last two months with the Legends than he has in last three years in another program. Sorry to keep rambling just can’t say enough about this team."

"This is BY FAR the BEST AAU basketball program that I have ever experienced. The coaches TRULY care about each player and work with them on what they need to be focusing on. I am so thankful that we found the Legends. I wish we had found them earlier! Love Steven Krebs, Mike and Anthony, also team mom Mickie Bulka, the kids and other parents!
