Youth Basketball Mini Season 2021

This winter, CHAMP is offering a group-based basketball experience. Players will learn, grow, practice, and scrimmage together within their group. They will stay with the same group throughout the season and will not play against or come into contact with other groups. 


January 25 – February 27, 2021

Program Format

Groups will meet once a week for five weeks. Each meeting will consist of a practice, a devotion, and an inter-group scrimmage. Coaches will mix up players each week to create unique scrimmage opportunities within the group.


Based on current health guidelines, one spectator per player will be allowed.
