Vertical Basketball

What is it?

Vertical Basketball exists to introduce boys and girls in Grades 1-4 to the game of basketball and develop their skills within a Christ-centered environment. Our season’s schedule keeps your family in mind as kids will play seven games on Saturdays during the season. Children will experience a fun and encouraging environment every week as they improve their basketball skills and form relationships with other kids and their coach.

Season Schedule

The 2022 season will run from January 15-February 26 with extended practice and coach meet-and-greet on January 8. Teams will play 7 games during the season on  Saturdays. Games will be played at Nappanee Elementary School, and the Nappanee Boys & Girls Club.


The cost is $75 per child on or before October 31. Between November 1 and November 13, the cost is $95 per child. No registrations will be accepted after November 13, and there will not be any refunds.


Registration for the 2022 season is now open.
Students currently in Grades 1-4 are welcome to register.

Skills Evaluation

Skills Camp will take place in November and cover fundamental basketball skills such as shooting, dribbling, passing, and defense techniques. While the skills camp is highly encouraged, it is not required. This gives the leadership team a chance to assess all players in order to create balanced teams. The Skills Evaluation for all age groups takes place at Nappanee Missionary Church.

Grades 1 & 2—November 13; 8:30-10 AM for Girls, 10:30 AM-12 PM for Boys
Grades 3 & 4—November 20; 8:30-10 AM for Girls, 10:30 AM-12 PM for Boys
