- Remember to teach the memory verse each week
- If all players know the memory verse, your team starts with 3 points
- Players not knowing the memory can not start the game
- Coaches need to set a positive example

Give God the glory for the addition to His Kingdom!
Moriah Basketball Purpose and Philosophy
Philosophy of the program:
1. Designed for Christian fellowship, recreation and outreach.
2. Designed for the development of the boys/girls in their game skills.
3. Designed for sharing the spirit of Christ, His love and mission with others and with sister churches through the boys/girls/ladies/men.
Going to multiple gyms on the same night
This pass is only good for that night and the specific number of people that come to the gatekeeper.
In other words one person cannot say "There are six of us going to Hyde Park from Zion". ALL OF THE PEOPLE MUST GO TO THE GATEKEEPER at one time.
The passes are supposed to be at each gym.
IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM - email me at email@example.com
This will put sportsmanship in it's proper view.
Are you focused on Jesus?
Coaches are really focused on Jesus or just winning?
Jesus died for all of us,
so that anyone who believes in Him may be saved.
