Registration for Basketball Season is OPEN!

Shades is participating with and hosting basketball leagues for the 2016-2017 season. We have 3 league options this year to cover players from 2nd through 12th grades. Games will be played either at Shades or other participating churches in the Dawson youth league. The purpose is to reach our community with the Gospel while having fun learning basketball skills. Please email Felecia with any questions you may have at fdewing@shades.org.
