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.

 
Registration Registrations are available online with payment of debit/credit card and will be in the church brochure racks by Feb 22. Paper registration forms will be accepted at the Welcome Desk Mon-Fri 9am-4:30pm with cash or check. Make checks payable to First Friends Church.
Fees $70.00 registration fee
$20.00 jersey fee (if you don't already have the black/red reversible jersey from past seasons)
($5.00 fee for all refunds)
No refund will be given to any player who withdraws on or after the first week of games. An exception may be granted at the discretion of the staff due to medical reasons only. Further, no refund will be given to any player removed from the league during the course of the season for disciplinary reasons.
