Biddy Basketball

Biddy basketball is an exciting sport combining team play and individual skills.  Every child gets to play and the games are safe, exciting and fun. We encourage fair play, positive competition, and family involvement. We utilize volunteer coaches to focus on participation and fun! We   encourage parents to volunteer as head coach, assistant coach or scorekeeper. While basic skills of the game are developed through practices and games, every child learns sportsmanship and every game begins with a prayer or devotion.

Special Needs Swim Lessons

Our swimming lessons for children for special needs is a great way to serve children with any special need. We know that not every child learns the same way, so we’re patient and understanding with ALL of our swimmers. Swimming is an ideal activity for kids, especially those with special needs, because it can also showcase hidden abilities and talents. We focus on positivity and celebrate accomplishments big and small!
