During Games for Players

Earrings: Earrings are NOT allowed during games.  If you plan to get your child’s ears pierced, please do so before practices start at the end of November.  This will give the ear time to heal.  The refs will NOT let your child play with bandages since it is a liability for them. 


Shoes:  Our colors this year are TBA.  FOR BB:  Converse and Vans are not allowed during games.  Standard basketball or running shoes are recommended.  FOR CHEER:  Converse and Vans are not allowed during games. Any other white tennis shoe will work.

Your team’s practice will be on a weeknight (one night out of the week; info will be given to the coach in the near future).  Practices take place at Oak Park Christian Center Gym M, T, Th, Fr, times will be: 5 – 6pm, 6 – 7pm, 7 – 8pm, or 8 – 9pm for grades 7th-8th.
