Vertical Basketball

What is it?

NMC Vertical Basketball exists to introduce kids 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 9 games during the season (Saturday and Thursday games). Your child 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 2020 season will run from January 18-February 29 with extended practice and coach meet-and-greet on January 18. Teams will play 9 games during the season on both Saturdays and Thursdays. 1st and 2nd graders will play their games at Nappanee Elementary School, and 3rd and 4th graders will play their games at NMC.


The cost is $59 per child on or before October 27. Between October 27 and November 10, the cost is $79 per child. No registrations will be accepted after November 10, and there will not be any refunds.


Registration for the 2020 season is closed.

Skills Evaluation

The Skills Evaluation covers fundamental basketball skills such as shooting, dribbling, passing, and defense. It’s critical that every participant attends the Skills Evaluation. It 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 NMC. Skills Evaluations for the 2020 season have been completed.
