WELCOME TO YOUTH BASKETBALL 2017-2018

Our league is dedicated to the families, and youth of our community. We take this time to reinforce what we believe, to revive character and honor, so our young people can see God’s way of life. We believe being a Christian is the greatest life there is and the league hopes to invest this life in teenagers through fun.

Core Mission

For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.” – 1 Timothy 4:8

God is Lord over all of our actions, including our play. He created the world and called it “good.” While we often think of creation the natural world, but God also created fun. When we understand God as the creator of recreation, we can enjoy fun for what it is: a way to honor God with our time. Along with teaching teenagers the Bible, the importance of serving, and how to live a life of faith, we also want to create a culture of play in our youth.
