Halftime Activities: The Laughing Hank!
What makes you laugh? Joy is not found in the absence of certain circumstances but rather in the presence of a Certain Someone. The Bible tells us that God will never leave us or forsake us. This means that God’s love for us and His presence in our lives does not depend on our circumstances. And so no matter what happens to us or around us God will always be with us. That is great good news! Maybe that’s what the angel had in mind it announced the birth of Jesus: “Do not be afraid! I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people! A Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord!”

2015 season will feature LEVEL 4 Expanded Rules for older leagues
Beginning this year, players in grades 5-8 will played under new “Expanded Rules.” These rules are designed to help our older players improve their ability as well as their understanding of the game. Expanded rules will include zone and man defense; overtimes and timeouts; league standings; and an end of season tournament! We are looking forward to implementing these new rules and believe they are going to ratchet up the level of competition and bring a new level of excitement to our league!
