Athletics

First Baptist School offers a secondary athletics program to our students. We believe that while sports is certainly not the only activity a student can participate in, it can be a worthwhile extra-curricular option for many students. We are pleased to offer volleyball (ladies) and soccer (guys) in the fall, basketball (ladies and guys) in the winter as well as cheerleading (ladies). In the spring we have ladies’ soccer. FBS athletics provides character-building opportunities for our students throughout each season. We teach our young people that their play is for the glory of God.

Basketball

Basketball

Basketball is offered in our winter months. We have both girls’ and boys’ basketball offered. We have Junior High Boys, Junior High Girls, Junior Varsity Boys, Varsity Girls, and Varsity Boys teams. Some young people will occasionally play on both a Junior Varsity and Varsity team. The competition level is very good at the Varsity level. The other teams are used for teaching and mentoring in regards to the game of basketball. The varsity teams participate in tournaments each year chosen by the Athletic Director. Usually, these tournaments are out of state, although some may be in state. The varsity teams also participate in the MACS State Basketball Tournament. This tournament is held at Fourth Baptist Christian School in Plymouth each year. The teams also participate in clinics to help teach kids the game of basketball. The young people also learn many valuable life lessons through the basketball season that eventually will help them in their future.

Cheerleading

Cheerleading

Cheerleading is a sport offered at FBS and the formation of a squad year by year is based on the interest received. Cheerleading tryouts are for grades 9-12 and are held in late October. Practices are after school three to four times a week. The varsity squad cheers for the entire boys’ game. They are able to provide leadership during pep rallies and games and help the fans with the spirit of the game during play, time outs, and halftime where they lead in floor cheers. Cheerleading helps bring unity and school spirit to the atmosphere of a game and adds much excitement. Cheerleading promotes well-being. They also provide leadership, instruction, and mentoring to our elementary girls during the annual cheerleading clinic.

Baseball and Softball

Baseball

Baseball is offered at First Baptist School, and the formation of the team is year by year based on interest. Baseball generally ranges from 6th-12th grade boys. Sometimes we are able to have a Junior High Team and a Varsity Team. The baseball team competes against several different schools. The boys travel to away games, as well as have their own home games on our property. The boys will usually have a clinic in which they help mentor younger kids in the area of baseball. The clinics help our boys to learn valuable leadership skills. Baseball is a sport that has the shortest season, but it helps the boys to still learn valuable lessons.

Soccer

Soccer

At First Baptist School we offer two levels of guy’s soccer. Junior high soccer consists of students in the 6th through 8th grade, and varsity consists of high school students and in rare cases, junior high players. Our season begins in early August and concludes at the end of October. The high school team participates in the MACS State Tournament to conclude the season.

Volleyball

Volleyball

In the fall semester, volleyball is organized for the girls of junior high, junior varsity, and varsity level. Depending on how many girls decide to participate, the three teams are then determined. The season generally begins two weeks before the first day of school and ends with the MACS state volleyball tournament the last week in October. Throughout the regular season, team members participate in after-school practices, games (usually on Tuesdays and Fridays), and other activities announced by the head coach.

The time spent learning and playing volleyball teaches the students hard work, self-discipline, and social skills. The physical exercise helps keep their bodies healthy. The extra time put into practices and prior planning helps them learn to prioritize and use their time wisely. Also, spending much time with the members of their team helps build a camaraderie between girls of different classes. Although some of the students may not go on to play volleyball competitively in college or after, they can apply the concepts of responsibility, respect, and teamwork learned on the court to their future jobs and families.
