Of all the sports we provide services for, basketball may be the most utilized by the community. The indoor courts at Macedonia and Armory are always filled with adults and youth enthusiasts. Our facilities -- indoors and outdoors -- have been the training grounds of generations of athletes; providing opportunities, honing their skills, and cultivating their love for the sport.

The City of Columbia has always been supportive of our local athletes. The Adult Men's and Youth Basketball Leagues have been running for years and has been a huge influence to our community. Check out when our next leagues will run and compete to be the best!

Flag Football

Flag Football is a variation of the football we all know. Instead of tackling someone, you have to get 1 or both of their flags placed at their waist to get a down. Football with no contact? Too easy, right?

Wrong. Flag Football is a high intensity, fast-paced, non-contact sport by itself. You may be a football superstar, but it does not guarantee you'll be great at Flag Football as well. Want to test your skills? Check out our upcoming clinics and leagues for adult and youth athletes!
