This league is for men age 18-39. Registrations are on an individual basis, and all teams are drafted after the open gyms.  A team consists of six to eight men.  Open gyms are for paid registered participants only.

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” Colossians 3:23

The Bible tells us that we are supposed to work at ALL we do with ALL of our hearts as if working for the Lord. At First Friends Church, we believe this truth can be applied to athletics as well. Just as with any gift or ability that God has given us, we should seek to use sports like basketball to glorify Him!
