Impact Basketball began in 2011 and has quickly become the premier instructional league in Lenawee County. Leagues are set up by grade levels 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, national dribbling sensation Tanya Crevier, and national dribbling family, Bruce Crevier with his crew! Celebrations are committed to ministering to children around the country through the game of basketball.
Impact Cheerleading For k-5th grades. The season is filled with great devotions that use sports and cheerleading to develop life skills from a Biblical perspective. The Impact Cheerleaders perform during games and at halftimes. Practices may include basic tumbling skills as well. Some teams even make posters to support the teams as well as forming a spirit tunnel or two! Practices are currently scheduled for Monday or Thursday evenings from 5:30pm-6:30pm.
