“Meeting Christ at Center Court”
The key elements of the programs seek not only to develop athletic skills, but to develop the self-esteem of each participant while teaching respect for authority, sportsmanship and character. Registration begins in the fall. Practices take place one night per week, and games are played on Saturdays beginning in December. Basketball is open to children in 1st through 6th Grade and cheerleading is open for children 4 Years through 6th Grade.
Our 1st and 2nd grade league is a non-competitive Christian program that focuses on teaching the fundamentals and growing the child’s self-esteem. No score is kept for this age group. Our 3rd thru 6th grade program is more competitive in a Christian atmosphere that stresses the fundamentals and skills needed to help the player prepare for middle school programs. We keep score for these age groups and introduce more aspects of the game.
Here is what you can expect at Creekside:
- devotions at every practice and game
- one practice per week for one hour
- one game each week on Saturday
- equal playing time for all players
- awesome Cheerleading practices and performances on game day
- officials for all games
