The Children’s Basketball League at First Baptist Church offers a great way for boys and girls to build self-esteem, gain self-confidence, have fun, and learn more about God and His love. The goals of the league are to teach children about Jesus and develop fundamental basketball skills in a positive and Christian atmosphere.
1st-6th graders will have all games on Saturdays beginning on January 16th and ending February 20th (inclement weather make up day February 27th). The Coaches Game/End of Season Awards is Sunday, February 21st (inclement weather make up day February 28th).
Registering your son or daughter in the Children’s League is simple. You can fill out a registration form and return it to the Activities Office with your $65 fee. Click here to download a registration form. Please turn it in as soon as possible so we will know how many children to expect at each Skills Assessment and we can have an adequate number coaches to perform the assessments in a timely manner
Another easy way to register is through our online registration which is available below. Please note that full payment of $67 per child by credit card is required with all online registrations.
There are NO tryouts for our children’s basketball program, however all children are required to attend one Skills Assessment session in our gym. The skills assessment will help us to understand the ability level of each player, and, therefore, divide the teams as evenly as possible. It will only take 15-20 minutes depending on how crowded we are at the time.
Teams will be determined by registration numbers, grade levels and gender. The younger teams will play using 8 1/2 foot goals, and the older teams will play using 10 foot goals.
Our coaches are committed to helping your child improve in their skill level and come to a greater understanding of Christ and the Bible. During the season the children will memorize scripture and will be led in a devotion by their coach at each practice.
If you have any questions, or would like to help be a coach or a leader, please call the Activities Ministry Office at 817-276-6490 or email us.
Please note that there is no late registration.
