The twenty-two years old and under men’s team that has existed as a program for over three years, and an eighteen years old and under men’s team, the Disciples, has existed as a program for over eight years.

The Basketball Teams of The First Presbyterian Church in Germantown serve to provide young people with an outlet for quality relationships with caring adults. The programs teach leadership, cooperation, physical and mental discipline, personal self-control and responsibility through the concept of teamwork and team identity. Each player’s personal growth and maturity are fostered through mentorship, community service opportunities and relational accountability.

Note from Coach Chris:

We need volunteers for every Disciple’s game. Don’t miss out on the action. If you wanna help, check your calender and let me know what game(s) you are interested in.

We just need people to help sell refreshments, keep score, or manage the time. The team is working hard to and it’s going to be a great season!
