We offer Basketball with Cheerleading and Flag Football with Cheerleading
Flag Football is coed, meaning girls and boys will play on the same team.
Basketball is not coed, the girls and boys play on their own separate teams/divisions (with the exception of the kindergarten division which is coed).
No; we divide the kids up into divisions with other kids around their grade level. 2nd graders may play with 1st graders or even 3rd graders but never any younger than 1st grade or older than 3rd grade. That is the same with every grade level from Kindergarten through 8thgrade.
Flag Football and Cheerleading – Registration starts in June, Evaluations are in August, Practices and Games start in September.

Practices can fall on Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays (depending on team placement, but will still happen only once per week). Games are always on Saturdays.
Practices and Games are one hour each. Practices run for 10 weeks and Games run for 8 weeks
With the exception of two Saturday practices at the start of the season, your child will only practice one day a week; Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday and will only play one game a week on Saturday.
Flag Football – Practices begin at 5, 6 or 7pm

This will depend on their grade, we typically begin with the younger teams first and work our way through the day up to the oldest division. Games usually begin about 9am and sometimes will finish into the evening.
Flag Football – Practices and Games will be held at the back fields behind the parking lot at Fruit Cove Baptist Church.
Basketball – The majority of our middle school-aged children will have their practices at either Freedom Crossing Academy or San Juan Del Rio Catholic Church Gym. All Saturdays (therefore all games) will be at the Freedom Crossing Academy Gym. That includes the two Saturday Practices before games begin.
Girl teams up to and including 6th graders, and Boy teams up to and including 4th graders, will have their practices and games in the ROC Gym located on the Fruit Cove Baptist Church campus.
Your child will receive their uniform no later than the first game of the season.
Flag Football – We will provide the flags, uniform, and wristbands. You will need to provide your child with rubber cleats and a mouth guard. We recommend buying more than one mouth guard!

Unfortunately, Evaluations are mandatory. In an effort to create competitively even matched teams, the evaluation process is critical.
Your child only has to attend one evaluation day.
You can bring your child to any one of the evaluation days that we have scheduled.
Anywhere between 30 – 90 minutes depending on the amount of players that arrive at the same time.
