Youth Basketball

Schedules will be available to coaches and sent to teams in early January.

Thank you for your interest in the youth basketball program at First Church in partnership with the R.C. Durr Y. This is an instructional league open to children ages 3-15 (based on age as of October 1, 2018), where the desire is to have fun while learning the game, building friendships and strengthening families. Each week there will be a short devotion and a related scripture verse.


Practices will begin January 2 and the seven-week league play begins the second week in January. The Y will complete the schedules by early January. Ages 3-4 games are held at the Y, weeknights at 5:30 (Mon-Fri, once per week). Ages 5-15 games are Saturdays. Games for ages 5-10 will be at the Y, while ages 11-15 will play at First Church.


Teams should consist of players from First Church and outside of First Church. Please take this opportunity to invite friends, neighbors, classmates, etc. to be a part of your team. Each player from outside of First Church should have a connection to a First Church player or coach. This is an opportunity to strengthen relationships we have with those in the community.


Coaches should be members or regular attendees of First Church. We encourage you to serve in this way. Before you begin forming a team, all interested coaches must meet with and be approved by Eric Tripp or Randy Goode. Please contact Eric or Randy for an appointment. We will also ask you to fill out a background check authorization.


We will make every effort to honor the preferences you provide during registration but will make no guarantees. Please encourage any preferred teammates to also register as soon as possible to assist us in forming the teams appropriately. Some teams may fill quickly so we encourage you to register early and take advantage of the early bird discount as well!


Thank you again for your interest in this program and registering your child to participate. See below for additional important information related to the registration process and the league.


If you have any additional questions, please let me know or contact Liz Van Dyke, at 859-586-4673 ext 129 or
