General Information

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

The FFC Men’s Open Basketball League is designed to provide a competitive men’s league in the Stark area. Based on First Friends Sports Ministry concepts, the league is composed of men 18-39 and is intended to provide competition in a warm and friendly fashion. During this unique time of fellowship, each participant is introduced to the claims of Christ and is encouraged to share with each other during post or pre-game huddles how Christ is impacting their lives.

Some playing experience is preferred. Registrations are on an individual basis, and all teams are drafted after the open gyms. A team consists of 6 to 8 men. Open gyms are for paid registered participants only.
