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.

All practices and games will be held at the gymnasium at First Baptist Athletics at 8600 N. College Ave, Indianapolis, IN.

Practice and Games

All divisions will have one practice per week and a Saturday game until weeknight games begin in lieu of practices, with these exceptions:

9-10 Boys and 11-13 Boys will have all practices and games at Westlane Middle School this Fall Session. Practices will be Monday nights and games will be Sunday afternoons. 

6 Coed, 5 Coed, and 4 Coed games - Sundays

Practices for 6 year old's will begin at 4pm during the week because of limited gym space.

4-year-old & 5 Year Old division info:
The 4 and 5 year olds will only play on Sundays. Their division format is structured into 20 minute practices followed by a game in which the coaches are heavily involved. The 4 and 5 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:

Equipment / Supplies

Participants should bring a water bottle and wear tennis shoes, socks, shorts (or sweatpants), 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:
