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 after 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.

 

Date/Time:  March 16, 2021 – May 20, 2021.    Game days for 2021 Season, Tuesday and Thursday at 5, 6 or 7pm.  All teams, in both divisions play on Tuesday and Thursday.   Devotions on Tuesday.

 

Fee:  $75.00 Registration fee

Refund Policy:  There will be a $5.00 fee retained for refunds. No refund will be given to any player who withdraws on or after the first week of practice. An exception may be granted at the discretion of the staff. Further, no refund will be given to any player removed from the league during the course of the season for disciplinary reasons.
