It’s that time of year again!!! Covenant’s youth basketball sign-ups will start the week of September 12. Registrations will be on a first-come, first-serve basis and will close on October 28 (or until we are full, whichever happens first). The link to the registration website is listed below and has all the information on age groups, “volunteer roles” (if you are interested in coaching), rules and more.
