Spring Basketball

Welcome to First Baptist Athletics - 2024 Spring Basketball!

The First Baptist Athletics Basketball program is designed for players of all skill levels. Our goal is to teach basketball in an environment that emphasizes fun and competition without sacrificing good sportsmanship and respect for others. All practices and games will be held in the gymnasium at First Baptist Athletics at 8600 N. College Ave, Indianapolis, IN.

Please enter the gymnasium through either Door 2 or 3 from the parking lot.

Age Divisions
Basketball divisions are offered for girls ages 4 to 9 and boys ages 4 to 10, based on the participant's age as of January 1.

*Please note that 6 year-old practices may be held at 4 PM if we have significant numbers registered for our Spring Session.

There are some exceptions: the 4 year-old division and 5 year old division are structured into 20 minute fundamentals (dribbling, shooting, passing) practices followed by a game in which the coaches are heavily involved.

7-9 Girls will play Saturday mornings
7-8 Boys will play Saturday late morning/early afternoon
9-10 Boys will play Saturday afternoons
4, 5 and 6 coed will be Sunday afternoons into early evenings

*All game times subject to change based on total registrations

The cost per participant for the season is $80 for all divisions.


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. Basketball sizes and goal heights by division appear below:

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer coaches are needed for every team. Please consider volunteering as 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, team 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 coaches your willingness to help.
