Downtown League

After much research and consideration, the Recreation Committee has made the decision to move ESBC to the CLBBY Basketball League, also known as the “Downtown League.” We are hoping this league will be a better fit for us for a few reasons!

  1. No more driving to Greer for away games- all churches are closer to ESBC.

  2. Teams are broken into divisions based on skill level. For example, we can enter our teams into the A, B, C, etc division based on how competitive we anticipate each team to be. This will hopefully prevent “blowouts” either way! When registering, you will be asked to estimate your player’s skill level (beginner, intermediate or advanced). This will help us when registering the teams.

  3. There are end of the season tournaments for all ages starting in 2nd grade.

  4. The younger players are broken up in smaller groups (K4-1st Coed, 2nd-3rd, 4-5th, 6-8th, 9-12th, Men and Women).

  5. High School Boys and Girls play on Monday nights.

  6. Men and Women play on Thursday nights.

   Important Information Before You Register

  1. If you are trying out for a school team, please do not register. Email Lucy at and your name will be added to our waiting list in the order it was received. No spots will be held on teams for those that are trying out for school.

  2. Teams are only allowed a max of 10 players. During the registration window (September 9-23), spots are given first to church members and previous year’s players. Starting Septemeber 23, open spots will be filled with new players. We will make every effort to find a spot for you but we are limited in the number of teams we can effectively form.

  3. Payment is due at time of registration ($35 youth/children; $45 adults). If payment has not been received by the end of September 24, the spot will be given up and the player will no longer be registered.

By registering your child, you agree to the above statements.
