Naz Basketball

The 2021 Naz Basketball season is almost here!

This league is for all kids 1st - 12th grade. Naz Basketball runs January - mid March and includes one practice and one game a week. The heart of the league is to provide a safe place for kids to play basketball, regardless of their skill level and to share the love of Jesus with them. If you or your child are interested in playing Naz Basketball, you can register below! Registration runs November 1st - November 30th and fills up very quickly.


Due to the extra precautions we are taking this year to help decrease the risk of spreading COVID-19, SPACE IS VERY LIMITED. We are not able to take as many teams as we typically can. So please register asap. Please note, each division also has a minimum number of players required to make that division happen. If not enough players sign up for a division we will have to cut the division for this year and try again next year. Due to the constant changes with COVID and the need to see how many kids sign up for each division, we are not requiring you to pay up front. Your registration will hold your spot, and we will be contacting you December 7th-14th to make your league payment. If you have any questions please email basketball@thenaz.org

Sign up today! Email basketball@thenaz.org with any questions!

Coaches Needed

We are so excited for all that God is doing in this ministry. A large part of what makes this league work is having wonderful coaches! We are in need of coaches for all age divisions, 1st - 12th grade girls and boys. If you are interested in coaching Naz Basketball or would like more information, please contact christinavandeveer@yahoo.com today! 

COVID-19 Policy

Both The Naz and Community Bible Church (partner church for this ministry) have been working hard to come up with procedures that will make this season happen as safe as possible. Below you will find our current COVID-19 Policies. Please know that these are based on the knowledge that we currently have and are subject to change before January based on our State policies, Church policies and MHSAA policies. All players/parents will be required to sign these policies upon registration, acknowledging them, as well as a COVID-19 waiver. Please be in prayer with us for a safe season!

Frequently Asked Questions

When are games and practices?

Practices are mostly on Sundays, with a few teams practicing Thursday evenings. Games are mostly Saturdays, with a few on Friday evenings. 


Can I play for my school team and The Naz?

If you are in 8th grade and under you may play for both. MHSAA rules state that a player who is playing for their high school cannot play in another league at the same time. 


Can I be on the same team as my friends?

The heart of this league is to create a safe place for kids to play the sport of basketball and have fun. To do this we aim to keep all our teams as fair and equal as possible. All players are asked to rank themselves beginner, intermediate or advanced (we also use coaches’ prior year’s experience with players). We then have a draft with the coaches to pick their team, with each team receiving an equal amount of beginner, intermediate and advanced players. If you have a specific need, you are welcome to email basketball@thenaz.org and we will share that need with the coaches at the draft. However, we cannot make any promises about team placement.
