KEY CHANGES SINCE THE 2014 SEASON

As the recruiting phase nears for the upcoming season it is important to know that we will be keeping only 15 players for a team that will play both local and travel games.  Once the season kicks off our focus will be local play with the occasional out of town tournament over the weekend.

Our travel season is most active over the summer months so expect to be on the road during that time.  Player commitment is crucial at this time so please be sure that our program takes priority over other events if you plan to participate.

Our goal is to offer 2 events each month.  If there is not a travel event for the month there will be a local event or team activity scheduled in its place.

DISCIPLES CLOSE OUT 2016 WITH CHAMPIONSHIP WIN

Our goals were simple when we started the season....... make it to the championship game!!! This year we made it to 2 of them and on Monday August 29th we won the Optimum Sports 7th/8th grade middle school league championship 

It was an amazing game and we have to give our opponents a ton of credit.  For 3 quarters they led the game taking every shot we took at them until we finally pushed past in the 4th quarter.  They are a great team and earned the respect of every coach, player, fan and referee on that day.

As for our team, it was another gutsy performance from every player.  So much so that naming a game MVP would be impossible because they all deserve so much credit. (2 players not available for the photo above)  It was a great way to end the season and an even greater preview of what's to come.
