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, help students improve their basketball skills. Two, 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. Games are played against local youth groups, non-profits, teachers, youth leaders and community businesses.
This year, I Am Third will start in January and run through February. Practices and games will take place during Drop-In on Thursdays.
