We will resume our league in the fall of 2021.  Here are some important dates:

August 8 at 12:00.  Meeting for all interested workers in Building D at ABC.  Want to coach, keep score, or referee?  Join us!  Pizza will be served.

September 11:  Sign-Up Day AND 3-on-3 Tournament for teens AND adults!  Times tbd soon.

September 18:  Games begin!


Anyone in grades 1-12* can sign up.  Use the form at right or call us!  There are many different sports leagues in the southwest valley.  We believe ours is the finest league around!  Here's why:

At only $25 for a full season of play, it is an incredible value and 50-75% less than comparable leagues.

Games and practices are at the same location, a quality gymnasium on church property.  Practices last for 1 hour for younger children and 1 1/2 hours for teens.  Practices are on M, T, Th, or F evenings and games are on Saturdays and last for 1 hour.

Coaches, referees, and time-keepers are all pre-screened volunteers who meet church guidelines for working with children and teens and who have passed a background test.  IMPORTANT:  If you would like to work in the league, get a copy of the background form online and then return to the church office.

Our goals and standards for behavior are high.  We teach values, morals, and sportsmanship in addition to basketball.

We are a true co-recreational league.  Males and females are welcome on all teams and both benefit from our league.

In our children's division, we divide our children by age and we shift teams during the season as necessary so that competion is equal and everyone gets to experience winning and losing.

We divide our teens by skill levels, which leads to a good level of competition for everyone.

We're not trying to make money.  We work hard to make a difference in the lives of children and teenagers in the southwest valley.  Any profits, if there are any, are used to purchase sports equipment to improve the league. 

We are openly Christian.  We do not insist that players come to church or share our beliefs, but we do practice our Christianity by showing love, by praying at practices and at games, by emphasizing Christian morality, and by offering a full program of children and teen ministry at our church. 

*All players must be age 18 or less on September 1, 2021.
