Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer coaches are needed for every team. Please consider volunteering as either a head coach or an assistant coach when registering your child. A criminal background check is required for all coaches.

Head Coaches are asked to attend a coaches meeting before the season starts and will receive rosters, schedules, and uniforms. Coaches will lead drills at practices and oversee game activities.

Assistant Coaches lend a significant helping hand to head coaches at practices and games.

Scoreboard and Scorebook Volunteers are recruited by each head coach to represent the team in either operating the scoreboard or keeping the official scorebook for the game.  Please proactively communicate to your child's coaches your willingness to help.

Fall Basketball

Welcome to First Baptist Athletics - Fall Basketball!

The First Baptist Athletics Basketball program is designed for players of all skill levels. Our goal is to teach the game of basketball in an environment that emphasizes fun and competition without sacrificing good sportsmanship and respect for others. All practices and games will be held at the gymnasium at First Baptist Athletics at 8600 N. College Ave, Indianapolis, IN.  Please enter the gym through either Door 2 or 3 from the parking lot.

Age Divisions
Basketball divisions are offered for both boys and girls from ages 4 to 13 based on the participant's age as of August 1.

Practice and Games

All divisions will have one practice per week and a Saturday game until weeknight games begin in lieu of practices. There are some exceptions: 9-10 Boys games are on Thursday nights (not Saturday), 11-13 Boys games are on Friday nights (not Saturday). Practices for 5 and 6 year old's usually begin at 4pm during the week because of limited gym space. The 4 year-old division format is structured into 20 minute fundamentals (dribbling, shooting, passing) practices, followed by a game in which the coaches are heavily involved.  The 4 year-old division participants are too young to play full games; however, this division is a great introduction to the basic concepts of basketball.  The 4-year-old schedule is as follows:

Cost

The cost per participant for the season is $115 for all divisions except the 4 year-old division which is $90.  A $15 late fee will be charged on all registration orders submitted after 6:00am on October 7.

Equipment / Supplies

Participants should bring a water bottle and wear tennis shoes, socks, shorts (or sweatpants), and t-shirts to practices and games. First Baptist Athletics will provide a game jersey. Kneepads are not required. Please DO NOT bring your own basketball to the FBA gym. We want to prevent loose basketballs that interrupt other practices/games and lost basketballs. FBA will supply basketballs. The basketball size and goal height by division appear below:
