6th-8th Grade: Devonshire Basketball League (2023-2024)  

This winter, 2022-2023, Devonshire Church is providing a youth basketball league that is available to elementary boys in grades 7-8.

The focus of our program is to offer boys the opportunity to learn and enjoy the game of basketball in a safe, supportive, and fun environment conducive to developing both athletic and team skills, as well as building a Christlike character.  We believe that players will have fun learning the rules, strategies, and fundamentals of the game of basketball while developing and strengthening important life skills and personal character traits such as: 
Responsibility, Teamwork, Communication, Leadership


$125 per player (includes the cost of T-shirt, practice times, 10 weeks of recreational basketball games, and other league fees)

AGES: Grades 7-8

REGISTRATION DATES: October 1 – October 25

LEAGUE PLAY & PLAYOFF DATES: December 2 – March 2

Player Evaluation Day will be communicated after registrations close, but will be held on Wednesday, November 15.

It is not a tryout, as all registered players will be drafted to a team.  Players unable to attend the evaluation or late registrations will be placed on a team at the director’s discretion.

Practice times will most likely be Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday evening for 45 minutes to an hour between 5:30pm and 9:30 pm.

Game times will be on Saturdays.

Is there a deadline to sign up?
The registration period is from October 1 to October 25. There are limited spots. Once we reach capacity for a division we will begin a waitlist.


Please wear comfortable tennis/basketball sneakers that won’t scuff up the gym floor.

Please bring a ball & remember to put your name on it.

Practices will begin with prayer and a brief devotional.

Games will open with prayer.

*We do not offer refunds except for the season being canceled. If a catastrophic injury happens or you are moving out of the area, you can email and ask for special consideration due to exigent circumstances. 

**If a refund is necessary, there will be a $25 administrative fee.

We expect all our players, coaches, parents, and fans to conduct themselves in a way that demonstrates good sportsmanship. No one is allowed to badger or talk trash to players, coaches, referees, or other fans. We are all human and we all make mistakes from time to time, but we want to ensure we are always setting the right example for our players who are always watching how we handle each situation.

Our program is blessed to have the facilities here at Devonshire Church. If you do not have a church home, we invite you to join us in person or online devonshirechurch.org
