Impact Basketball began in 2011 and has quickly become the premier instructional league in Lenawee County. Leagues are set up by age level and there are separate divisions for boys and girls. The rules are age appropriate and designed to teach children the game of basketball while keeping it fun and competitive. The season is also filled with great devotions and team times that use the game of basketball to develop life skills from a Biblical perspective. Our end of the season celebrations have featured high energy acts that children love, such as former Harlem Globe Trotter, Seth Franco, and national dribbling sensation Tanya Crevier, that are committed to ministering to children around the country through the game of basketball.
What are the age groups? New for this year teams will be formed by current grade in school instead of by age. We have made this adjustment to better follow basketball standards.
