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 2024

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 will be held in the First Baptist gym this year.

Age Divisions

Practices 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:

6 Coed, 5 Coed, and 4 Coed divisions will have games on Sunday afternoons at FBA.

5 Coed and 4 Coed divisions will practice and play games on Sundays only.  Their division format is structured into 20-minute practices followed by a game in which the coaches are heavily involved. These divisions are a great introduction to the basic concepts of basketball. Game and practice schedules will be sent out to parents shortly after teams are published. 

6 Coed practices will begin at 4:00 PM during the week due to limited gym space. 

9-10 Boys games will be on Sunday afternoons at WESTLANE MIDDLE SCHOOL and practices on Monday nights at WESTLANE MIDDLE SCHOOL.
11-13 Boys games will be on Sunday afternoons at WESTLANE MIDDLE SCHOOL and practices on Monday nights at WESTLANE MIDDLE SCHOOL. 

High School League will play games Tuesday & Wednesday nights at FBA. Schedule is TBA.

The cost per participant for the season is $150 for all divisions, except the 4 year-old & 5 year-old divisions, which are $120.  A $15 late fee will be charged on all registration orders submitted after 4:00 am on Jan 8th.

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:
