Halo Hoops Winter League

LET’S GO!  It’s the rally cry you hear in every sport, at every age. A shout of confidence and encouragement – much like the tenacious words of Joshua who led the Israelites to the Promised Land.  Many of his people were afraid of the things they’d heard and anxious about their uncertain future.  But Joshua reassured them again and again…Keep going.  Be strong and courageous.  Put ALL your confidence in God.

And that’s our focus this season in the Halo Winter League.  We’re urging young players to put their trust in God and play with supreme confidence.  With every challenge, God is with us, unfolding a good future.  


Halo practices are packed with instruction and fun!  
– 5-year-olds practice for 30 minutes prior to their game on Saturday.  
– All other teams practice one night during the week for 45-6o mins depending on the age.  
– Coaches select their practice time and location on a first-come, first-served basis from a variety of gyms around Wilmington.
