Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer coaches are needed for every team. Please consider volunteering as either a head coach or 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, schedule, 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 to either operate the scoreboard or to keep the official scorebook for the game.  Please proactively communicate to your child's coaches your willingness to help.

Winter Basketball

Welcome to First Baptist Athletics - Winter 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. The boys high school division (also called "First at Second", "1st at 2nd," or "First Baptist at Second Presbyterian") will be held off-site at Second Presbyterian Church at 7700 N Meridian St, Indianapolis, IN.

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

*Please note that 5 year old and 6 year old practices will be held at 4 PM.

Practices 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), and the 4 year-old division format is structured into 30 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:

The cost per participant for the season is $110 for all divisions except the 4 year-old division which is $90 and the high school division is $125. A $15 late fee will be charged on all registration orders submitted after 6:00am on Jan 10th.

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 sizes and goal heights by division appear below:
