EDGE Sports announces
STEUBENVILLE — EDGE Sports, a Christ-centered, Tri-State youth basketball league for boys and girls in grades one through six, is preparing for its upcoming 2020-21 season and has announced registration information.
Experienced coaches and chaplains will teach solid basketball fundamentals and core Christian values as part of the program, according to a news release from First Westminster Presbyterian Church in Steubenville. It notes: “The EDGE Sports concept was formed seven years ago when a group of retired coaches were getting together for Bible study. We wanted to reach kids and promote Christian core values and go beyond what they were learning on the court. We have involved the community through sponsorships, schools, coaches, chaplains and the church.”
All coaches and chaplains will participate in BCl background screenings. Each basketball team will practice one or two evenings a week and play one weekly game, usually on Sundays after 1 p.m. All games and practices will be held in Steubenville City School gymnasiums.
