General Information

The FFC High School League is designed for boys (9-12th grade) who have had some experience playing basketball and are looking for fun and fellowship at the community level. This league is geared toward developing teamwork skills in addition to individual playing skills.   The league is divided into two divisions according to skill level.

This league runs from March to May each year.  Fifteen minutes before each game once a week we take time to share biblical principles with the players and encourage them to pursue a life with Christ in our huddle time. Players and coaches are also encouraged to memorize scripture verses weekly.

 

Note: According to OHSAA regulations, boys who have participated on school teams may play in First Friends Leagues. However, there may not be more then two players from the same school team on any recreational team. This rule excludes seniors.
