We are excited to announce the inaugural season of ALMIGHTY BASKETBALL | SPECIAL NEEDS LEAGUE.

The ALMIGHTY SNL Program focuses on the development of players who have special needs. Modified rules of basketball are applied to allow for engagement and participation by all players and also to allow coaches to ensure on court player success.

Players are assigned to teams based on skills/abilities as assessed by parent/coaches, the Almighty Staff, and other program leaders.

Prospective groupings are as follows:

      • Ages 7-10 years
      • Ages 11-14 years
      • Ages 15-18 years
      • Ages 18+

Each team will be led by a parent/coach(es) that are screened, trained and background checked prior to taking a team. Games and practices will take place on Sunday afternoons.

The season will include 8 practices/games. All games and practices are held in the Gym/ARC at First Baptist Church Broken Arrow under the direction of Almighty Sports.

Who can participate?
Almighty Basketball | SNL is open to the community and is available for participants ages 7 years and up.

When is practice?
Practices will be held on Sunday afternoon. Practices (30-minutes) and games (30-minutes) will be held the same day.

Where are games/practices held?
Games and practices are held in the gym on the campus of First Baptist Church Broken Arrow.

When are games played?
Games/practices will be played on Sunday afternoon between 1:30 and 4:30pm.

Who are the coaches?
The coaches are volunteers…generally moms and dads of the kids playing. All volunteers are screened, trained and background checked prior to taking a team. If you would be interested in coaching, please contact Robbie at revans@fbcba.org.

How are teams formed?
Team formation will be based on age and ability and assessed by parents/coaches, Almighty Staff, and league coordinators.

Almighty Sports does not allow “pre-formed” teams. 

Can I request a specific team?
Players can request a friend, a coach, or both. We do our best to honor all requests, but cannot guarantee that it will be possible to do so.

What is the weather policy?
Most decisions are game-day decisions. An email will go out by 7:30a on game days to advise on the current status of games if there is inclement weather. It is rare that we need to cancel since we are inside. However, there are instances with snow and ice in the parking lot that could make it necessary to cancel.

What if games are canceled?
Games that are canceled due to weather will be rescheduled as the calendar allows.

What is the refund policy?
We make every effort to honor all friend/coach/practice day requests, however, in some cases that is not possible. Unless a player is unable to be placed on a team, a refund will not be available, except in cases of financial hardship, for medical reasons, or for a family moving out of the area. Refunds will be subject to approval of the athletic & recreation pastor.
