Flash League is the most fun your player will have all week! Your kids will enjoy the pregame intros with fog machines and music, longer games, concessions stand, and the End of Season Awards Celebration.

How will Divisions/Teams be determined?
We are having everyone register for a specific Boy or Girl Grade Level, with exception to Kinder/1st Co-Ed. Once registration ends, we will determine the final Divisions and teams based on enrollment. For example, we may combine 3/4th Boys if there are not enough 4th grade boys signed up to form their own Division.
Do you honor player and coach requests?
Yes, we will honor coach and player requests up to roster capacity. Having said that, for the benefit and enjoyment of everyone, please register to ‘play up’ if your assembled team is more skilled than average. Advanced 3rd and 4th Graders are encouraged to try out for Flash Competitive teams.
Are there mid-week practices for Flash League's Winter Basketball?
Kinder/1st Co-ed teams do not have mid-week practices. All other age Divisions will have one mid-week 60 minute practice. All practices and games will be held at PDX First Church.
Can I volunteer to coach?
Yes, we need you! All Coaches will need to be background checked and required to attend our Coach’s pre-season meeting/clinic. Your partnership in being a positive role model for the kids in our community is greatly appreciated!
