I Am Third is a program involving our middle and high school basketball teams. These teams are put together for students who want to play basketball in a competitive environment but may not normally make the school team.
This program has two goals. One is to help students improve their basketball skills, and the other is to teach the idea that Jesus is first, others are second and I am third in each activity we do. Positive peer mentors are recruited to work with younger students to help reinforce this concept and provide a steady positive influence. Students will form teams of five or six students and use the second half of Drop-In on Thursdays to play games against each other.
This year, I Am Third will start in January and run through February. Practices and games will take place during Drop-In on Thursdays.
