"Those who fail to succeed do so because they fail to choose what they want most, over what they want at the moment."

Wisconsin Concussion Law Act 172 - Statute 118.293
The law requires all youth athletic organizations to educate coaches, athletes and parents on the risks of concussions and head injuries and prohibits participation in a youth activity until the athlete and parent or guardian has returned a signed agreement sheet indicating they have reviewed the concussion and head injury informational materials. The law requires immediate removal of an individual from a youth athletic activity if symptoms indicate a possible concussion has been sustained. A person who has been removed from a youth athletic activity because of a determined or suspected concussion or head injury, may not participate again until he or she is evaluated by a health care provider and receives written clearance from the health care provider to return to the activity.
“At the beginning of a season for a youth athletic activity, the person operating the youth athletic activity shall distribute a concussion and head injury information sheet to each person who will be coaching that youth athletic activity and to each person who wishes to participate in that youth athletic activity. No person may participate in a youth athletic activity unless the person returns the information sheet signed by the person and, if he or she is under the age of 19, by his or her parent or guardian.”

More concussion related information from the WIAA website.


The Concussion Acknowledgement Form must be filled out for every sport season, may not be passed from one season to the next, and must be filled out for every sponsoring organization.  For example, this summer the high school athletes will have the opportunity to attend 5 contact days with the coaching staff.  Each athlete will have to fill out the Concussion Acknowledgement Form prior to participation.  The Chilton Booster Club is also offering a basketball camp to our boys basketball players.  They will have to fill out another Concussion Acknowledgement Form for the CBC, even though the camp and contact days overlap.

The following link will take you to the Chilton Boys Basketball page on  Here you will find links to team stats, conference stats, conference standings, and a "coach notes" link.  Stats are updated regularly, and Coach Behnke will use the "coach notes" link throughout the season to express his thoughts about previous games, practices, and upcoming opponents.

The following is information for both parents and players regarding conferences, practice, rosters and cuts, characteristics of Chilton Basketball, and more.

Parent Conferences

Please do not approach a coach after a game with a concern.  Our emotions run high after games, as I'm sure your do, and we do not feel that this is the time to discuss any concerns you might have.  If you wish to discuss your son, please set up and meeting with us. 



All practices are open to parents to observe.  We'll get you a chair so you can sit back and relax, but please do not offer advice to the players during this time.


Varsity/JV Rosters

For the first week of practice, all returning JV and Varsity players will practice together, as well as any other seniors that may come out.  Our varsity team can consist of a maximum of 15 players, but the cutoff is typically 14 so that we have some roster flexibility during the season.  Seniors that to not make the Varsity team will be cut.  Sophomore and Juniors who do not make the varsity, will make up our JV squad. (as long as there are no more than 15 players in this group, otherwise cuts will have to be made)  We will evaluate players based upon many things, including but not limited to:  Ball handling, communication, leadership, shooting consistency, team and individual defensive ability, and commitment to putting the team goals ahead of individual aspirations.  The best 14 players won't necessarily make the best varsity TEAM.  Freshmen will start the year on the freshmen team, but will have the opportunity to move up to JV if their skills, and roster space, allow.

For the varsity team, we try and play at least nine or ten players every game.  While this is the game plan, it is not always possible.  Many time opposing matchups, pace and physicality of the game, and player performance will regulate who plays, and to what extent.  It is just not possible to play all 15 players in every game.  There is nothing harder for a coach than to not play someone, but it's a reality of high school basketball.  However, we value and treat every player on our team as an equal. 


6 Foundations of Tiger Basketball

The following are six characteristics that Chilton Basketball needs to be known for.  When we become good at all 6, we will be very tough to beat.

  1. Toughness
  2. Great Pressure Defense
  3. Superb Shot Selection
  4. Contest Every Shot
  5. Fight For Every Rebound
  6. Tremendous Screening Team





Purpose of Practice

Their are 4 main reasons that we practice.  If we are not consistently working on these 4 areas, our practice time is being wasted.

  1. Develop chemistry and trust with teammates
  2. Build superior habits and skills
  3. Learn
  4. Gain ability to react, not think


Practice Rules


Missed Practices

Our practice schedule for the season will be handed out during the first week of practice.  Please schedule doctor appointments, drivers tests, etc around practice.  We do understand that things come up, but please do your best to avoid practice time.  Every practice is extremely valuable to us, so do not be surprised if missed time is expected to be made up.  Also, deer hunting is not an excuse to miss a varsity practice.  For every missed practice for deer hunting, one game will be missed as well.  JV and Freshmen coaches will determine what is and is not allowed for each of their teams.



  1. RECOGNIZE the mistake
  2. ADMIT the mistake
  3. LEARN from the mistake
  4. FORGET the mistake



By WIAA rules, coaches are allowed 5 contact days with the players.  These days will be used to practice as a team, working on fundamentals and new install, prior our summer tournaments.  Aside from the 5 contact days, coaches are allowed no teaching time during the summer.  We are allowed to open the gym, watch and observe, and nothing more.  It is extremely important for the players to push themselves during these times.
