WHAT IS CADET BASKETBALL?
The Coed 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. Incorporated in this process is our First Friends Sports Ministry Devotional program to enhance each athlete’s development outside of practices and games.
EXPLANATION OF CADET BASKETBALL DIVISIONS
The Cadet League contains three divisions; Red, White, and Black (formerly Blue). Players in all divisions will play with the hoop at 10 feet. Players in all divisions use intermediate (28.5) size basketballs.
Immediately following the practices (starting the practice before the first game), we take time to share biblical principles with the players and encourage them to pursue a life with Christ in our huddle time, which will last approximately 15-20 minutes.
