General Information

Please click on the tab “Important Information” to view more details.

The Co-Ed Cadet Basketball League is geared toward all skill levels for boys and girls in the sport of basketball. Skills to be taught in this league include dribbling, passing, shooting and defending. In competing with others in the community, boys and girls are able to develop a strong ethic of sportsmanship, learning to compete in a friendly manner. There will be a short devotional time where we share biblical principles with the players and encourage them to pursue a life with Christ every week.
