Activities and Recreation

Trinity offers a variety of activities for all age groups and skill levels. Our programs are open to church members as well as community members.

 

YOUTH/CHILDREN'S BASKETBALL

Register

Trinity Presbyterian Church's basketball programs provide an environment of fun, fair play, and fellowship. We emphasize participation by all and a proper balance between enjoyment and the development of skills.

We offer a “Club” Program for Kindergarten and 1st Graders, played at TPC on Sunday afternoons (practice and games).

We offer a “League” Program for 2nd Graders through 9th Graders, played on Saturdays at TPC and AGS, or through the NACBL here at TPC and surrounding churches, with a 45-minute  weekday evening practice time at TPC.

 

Basketball Club: K - 1st graders

The “Club” Program for Kindergarten and 1st Graders, is played at Trinity Presbyterian Church on Sunday afternoons.  Practices precede games on Sundays, which will be a combined 45- to 60-minutes long and will be scheduled between 12:30 pm and 5:00 pm.  In the Basketball Club, the rules will be modified so that all children who participate will enjoy the game and begin to learn the basics of basketball.  We don't keep score during the game, playing time and opportunities with the ball (dribbling and shooting) will be distributed equally, and require a restricted defense to allow the children to learn offensive fundamentals.  All children play in the same division. 

Practices and games will begin on Sunday, January 6, 2019. 

 

Youth Basketball League: 2nd - 9th graders

In the Basketball League, boys and girls teams are divided by gender, and grouped into grade divisions to allow teams to play similarly aged competition. The “League” Program is played at Trinity Presbyterian Church or Atlanta Girls School, OR through the NACBL which plays its games here at Trinity and surrounding churches.  Each team will have a 45- to 60-minute practice time on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday evenings, or Sunday afternoons.  Games will be played on Saturdays between 8:30 am and 6:00 pm.

Practices will begin Sunday, November 25, 2018 and games begin Saturday, January 5, 2019 (there will be a Christmas Break hiatus in the practice schedule from December 23rd to January 1st).  Practice and game schedules will be given to coaches once registration has closed.  If you have a preference for when to practice, please communicate this with your coach.  Coaches will be responsible for communicating this preference to us.

Questions and communication about the program will be conducted only via e-mail at basketball@trinityatlanta.org. Please anticipate a 24- to 36-hour response time during the week and longer on weekends. TPC does not employ a full-time activities director to administer the basketball program.
