Jackson Friends Church Middle School Coed Basketball League is for grades 7th and 8th boys and girls (although at this age, it’s about 90% boys, 10% girls). The league is recreational and will focus on developing youths’ basketball skills, teaching good practice techniques, and developing interpersonal and teamwork skills. Each game will feature a half time devotion/prayer with the players. We want to make sure participants have an enjoyable experience with the game, learn about Jesus, and increase their basketball skills! Jackson Friends Sports Leagues give equal playing time for all kids!

Practices will start Nov. 28th or 30th depending on the team, and the first game is December 8th (although we will have one extra practice Friday, Dec. 1st). All activities at Jackson Friends Church, unless we have overflow. There will be 11 practices and 9 regular season games. We will be on Christmas break for this group Dec. 19 – Jan. 1 and come back with Tuesday teams practice on Jan. 2 (Thursday teams Jan 4), before games resume Jan 5th.The top eight teams at the end of the regular season will make the playoff bracket. Teams that fall outside the top eight will play in a consolation game (so all teams will get at least 10 games) OR we may do a play-in game for seeds 9 and below (TBA). Playoff dates will be determined when teams are set.

As always, we will do our best to keep the facilities clean and safe for kids, parents and fans alike!

We hope you will join us this season!
