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.
