BASKETBALL MINISTRY

Trinity Presbyterian Church is all about Basketball!

Playing team sports is a great way to learn the fundamentals of the sport, to learn how to work together to achieve a goal, and most importantly learn good sportsmanship. Our goal since the beginning of our basketball ministry is to pass on a love of the sport, to be better at it by the end of the season than you were when you started and have a lot of fun working together as a team, by providing the community with a safe, stable, Christian environment for young people to participate in an organized basketball league with teams of their age group.

All our teams are associated with the Blue Ridge Christian Sports League and play other teams in the league.

Each team will have a head coach, and most of our teams will have at least one assistant coach. All the adults who volunteer in our basketball ministry have cleared Trinity Presbyterian’s child protection training and background check procedures and are committed to the safety and well-being of all the kids who play.
