First Baptist Church Gadsden is sponsoring children’s basketball teams to play in the Etowah Baptist Association league. We’ve done this for a few years now and always have a great time. We do not have complete information on teams/coaches yet as it is still pretty early, but you can register and we will place you on a team when the time comes. We will field teams from the age groups listed below. The EBA has not released information about the age restrictions yet. It typically follows the school grades, but we cannot guarantee the cutoff age right now. A child may play on a team above his or her age range, but not below.
The season will begin in late November or early December and go through January or February, taking breaks for holidays etc. We do not know the precise start date for games. That will be announced by the EBA closer to the season.
Players are required to regularly attend the church for which they play. An exception may be made if the player regularly attends another church which does not have an EBA basketball team in their age bracket.
4th-5th Grade, Boys (currently do not have a 4th-5th grade girls team)
2nd-3rd Grade, Coed
K5-1st Grade, Coed
Cost is $50 per player with $150 family max. You will have an opportunity to pay online at the end of your registration, however if you miss the link here is the link to our online pay. This pays for team registration fees, t-shirt (uniform), end of the season party, etc.
Registration Deadline Oct 31st, 2018
A player may register late, between Nov 1-5, 2018 with a $25 late fee (for a total of $75). Registration closes Nov 5th.
