The Fellowship of Afro-American Men Youth basketball league offers competitive Basketball and Cheerleading programs to middle school boys and girls in 6th, 7th and 8th grades. The girls league is open to girls in 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grades.
FAAM has 14 boys, 6 girls and 2 Cheerleading teams, over 350 youth in the league, over 80 volunteers, and a feeder to the ETHS basketball program.
FAAM is a non-profit organization that is run on fundraising and volunteers. In and effort to keep registration fees low, FAAM needs 100% participation in fundraising. The Registration fees include the participation fees, and a mandatory fundraiser fee. Each player will receive a book of tickets for Pancake Day, which you can sell to recover the mandatory fundraising fee of $50 included in the registration fee.
The FAAM season begins with a draft for new participants in September. The league runs for 13 weeks from October to February, we hold weekly games and practices are twice a week for each team. Practice will start the week after draft. Playoffs commence in February, ending with the Boys and Girls Championship and Consolation games held in February on the date of our Annual Pancake Day Fundraiser. Each March we hold our Annual Awards Banquet where we honor players for both academic and athletic achievements.
