It’s officially ignition Basketball Season!
Many of you already know I am a big time college hoops fan (ok – big time Hoyas fan). But even THAT doesn’t compare to the basketball season in ignition! I love seeing the students encourage each other in practice and in the games. I love getting to hang out with parents and families, seeing the way you all love on and build up your own, and cheer for and embrace the other students.
It’s like one gigantic 3 month long “Hug-Five”!
So, if you have never come out for a middle school basketball game, you may think I am a teense bit crazy. You may think that anyway. But trust me on this one…
From January-March, there are VERY few better places to be than courtside for one of these games.
Below, you’ll find the schedule. We have two teams this year, both amazing, and four amazing adults involved in the skill support and spiritual development of each of these students. I would like to ask for your help in one specific area in addition to coming out to the games.

As we get ready for this coming Saturday’s debut games, and as the season continues,
Would you please be praying for us?
Not for victory (although we’ll welcome that as it comes) but for our students and leaders to be transformed in to being more like Jesus through this season. For safety, security and community. For an opportunity to share with others this experience and God’s hand in our lives in this process.
Maybe, just maybe, you can’t make the game this week. Ok. I get that. You’ve got a lot of other weeks to choose from! So, I hope to see you in the bleachers at least once this winter!
In the meantime, be sure to check out our slideshow from recent practices!
