The goal of the HOOPS program is to Honor Our Only Personal Savior, Jesus Christ, in everything we do. We hope to teach and improve basketball skills, introduce children to a positive competitive environment, and reinforce the meaning of playing on a TEAM. Sometimes this means your child may not shoot every time they are open, but will pass the ball instead. Sometimes this means that a violation may be called against a skilled player that is not called against an unskilled player. This allows us to work on TEAM building skills and allows all players the opportunity to participate and see success.
Highland Park Baptist Church is so excited for the upcoming 2021 season and the 6th Anniversary of the HOOPS program! Please encourage your children to participate in the prayer partner program. Notepads and pens will be provided next to the lockers throughout the season. Players are encouraged to place prayer requests in their teams boxes at any time. Coaches will distribute communication from prayer partners during practices.
