Athletics is an essential part of any school program. Through competition we learn how to win and how to lose. Through training we learn endurance and perseverance. And through teamwork we learn what it means to work with other people for the same goal. Under our mascot, the Patriots, HOPE has a very active basketball program. We have both boys and girls teams; varsity, junior high and elementary levels. Each year we play local private and Christian schools in a rigorously matched season. We also offer year long training programs for those who may want to hone their skills or simply get some exercise.
Basketball is not the only option available through HOPE. While we currently only have this program we have also had volleyball, soccer and flag football teams in the past. Our group is always open to new sports teams and athletic endeavors. As a volunteer led organization, anything is possible if there is someone ready to see it happen!
