Welcome to Jackson Friends Church Adult (18+) Summer Basketball League!
NOTE: This basketball league is a “BRING YOUR OWN TEAM” league, Full Court 5 on 5, for adults who are 18 years of age and older. IF you do not have a team you may try to sign up as a free agent, and if there are enough players to make a team from the free agents that will be done (if not, you will receive a full refund minus $5 ). MINIMUM SEVEN PLAYERS ON A TEAM.
This summer, we will split into THREE divisions:
Division 1: Age 18-35 Year Old Competitive Division, for those that are still in their prime and/or want to compete at the highest level. At least half of your team must be age 18-35 to participate in this division. Certain exceptions may be made for highly competitive older teams.
Division 2: Age 18-35 Year Old Recreational Division, which might be suited more for those coming straight from high school or those just interested in playing in the league at a less intense pace and more recreationally. At least half of your team must be age 18-35 to participate in this division. Certain exceptions may be made.
Division 3: 35+ Year Old Division. For this division, all but two players on the team must be at least 35+. So you may have two players that are 18-34 years of age, but the rest must be 35+. Certain exceptions may be made.
The league regular season runs from June 5 through July 20 (seven regular season games). Single Elimination Playoffs for ALL TEAMS will take place on Monday/Tuesday/Thursday starting July 24th and ending by August 10th (at the latest, depending on how many teams in each division). Games will start as early as 6 PM, with the latest game starting at 9 PM. Two certified OHSAA referees will be at each game. The games will consist of two 20 minute halfs on a running clock, with stoppages on dead balls under one minute in the first half, and two minutes in the second half (including made baskets). Before each game we will have a prayer and a short devotion for teams at half time.
The costs for the league registration will be $72 per individual, and an additional $20 IF a jersey is needed (all jerseys worn must be JFC jerseys, UNLESS you have appropriate matching jerseys). Jerseys do run a little big.
TEAM REGISTRATION DEADLINE: MAY 15, 2023

Masks required indoors for spectators at this time.- Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the building.- Bathrooms will be available, BUT we strongly encourage everyone to use their restroom at home before coming, to minimize the number of people using the restroom.
