Halo Hoops Winter League

Have you ever seen a player turn the ball over, throw their hands up in disgust and completely miss out on the action going the other direction?  Of course, their coach and teammates are urging them on, “Don’t worry about it!  Go!  Keep playing!”  
That encouragement is spot on.  Young players need lots of chances to play through mistakes and adversity, to move on quickly to the NEXT PLAY.
On a larger scale, we’ve all faced these situations during the pandemic.  We’ve felt the great distress and disappointment with what’s happening.  If we have God’s power in our hearts, we don’t get stuck in the hardship.  We move on with hope, keeping our eyes open for the good to come.

So this season, let’s all encourage our Halo kids to play through their mistakes and move on to the NEXT PLAY!


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.

The atmosphere at Halo games is how youth sports is meant to be!
