Team Eikon

 

One of our ways to be effective in the neighborhood is having an all boys basketball team composed of 4 th -6 th grade boys; ranging from age 9-12 years old. We understand that one of the things youth in the neighborhood love is the game of basketball. You ask most youth what they want to be when they grow up and they will say, “I want to play in the NBA!” To take advantage of this we coach basketball teams for the purpose of relationship evangelism. We use the game of basketball to mentor, share the gospel, and to monitor/encourage good grades and behavior. We play these young boys through the East Shelby Church Recreational Association (ESCRA) League. This League provides the opportunity for our boys to play other teams from a different side of the track. We have boys that play on our Team that are from several different schools in the community. We start the season in September and play every Saturday starting December through March.
