We are over 800 now in enrollment. I will be closing certain grade levels because our “wait list” feature does not seem to be working. So If you are having trouble enrolling, please send me an email to let me know you are interested in registering to play this season.

keep checking back at this website for updates. I will be posting a game schedule next tuesday so you can have a general idea your game times and location.

Play with heart,


Haygood Hoops has been a favorite winter activity for intown families since 1992. Haygood Hoops ministry welcomes children and youth for physical exercise, teamwork, skills development and fun. Haygood Hoops culture puts the emphasis on fun and sportsmanship in a friendly, laid back, family atmosphere. Last season over 900 families participated in our program.

Haygood Hoops is open to boys and girls in grades Pre-K through 12th. All players, in all divisions, will play at least half of the game. Practices and games are played in the Haygood gym and at other gyms around our community (Mary Lin Elementary School,  Inman Middle School, Morningside Baptist Church and Springdale Elementary School aka SPARKS).

Registration for church members only opens on Monday, August 26, 2019. (This is a very strict policy. If your name is not on the church’s role after being reviewed by Haygood staff, your registration will be cancelled!)

Registration for the 2019-20 season will be open for everyone on Tuesday, September 3, 2019.

The cost is $155 for grades Pre-K to 3rd; and $175 for grades 4th-12th. This season’s format will be very similar to last season.
