The Athletic Directors from the area Christian schools; Sunbury Christian Academy, Northumberland Christian School, Meadowbrook Christian School and Columbia County Christian School run an elementary basketball program for boys and girls in 4th through 6th grades. This is a developmental league, it is competitive but the main goals are to have fun, keep the kids moving and learn more about the basics of basketball.

The season runs for 6 weeks with tentative start dates at the beginning of March. Games are only on Tuesday nights and practice times and dates are set by each individual school. Games consist of 4 – 8 minute quarters with a running clock.  The clock will only stop at the 4:00 mark of each quarter for mandatory 30 sec. substitutions.  No timeouts will be given.

This is a development league and therefore, every player must play at least one full quarter. Non shooting fouls will result in retaining possession. Shooting fouls will result in the fouled team receiving 1 point and retaining possession. Non shooting fouls in the final minute of the 4th quarter will receive 1 point and the basketball out-of-bounds on the sideline. No full court pressing.
