HP Pres
Church League

The HP Pres Church League (previously PCBL) has been a historic presence in the Park Cities for nearly 40 years. It is a Christ-centered basketball league that allows students to enjoy competitive play in a safe and fun environment. Every year, more than 250 male students from 7th–12th grade participate in a season that spans 6–8 weeks, with leagues organized according to grade level. This year, we are excited to be hosting the league in our brand-new gym. Every game begins with a devotional and follows high school basketball rules with trained and certified referees and table workers. The league has volunteers who manage the time clock, scores, fouls, and substitutions. The season concludes with playoffs and championships in each league.

Everything Else About Church League

My registration is not submitting or the website is not accepting payment.

Our online registration does not take American Express, and all issues we’ve experienced from this has come from people using American Express for the payment. If you are still having problems, let us know and we’ll get back to you at our earliest convenience.

I’ve registered as a Team Coordinator, now what?

You will receive an e-mail from Protect My Ministry prompting you to complete a background check. You must complete this background check in order to be a team coordinator in the basketball league! 

Where and when do practices take place?

We do not schedule any practices! This league is games only.

My son does not have a team but wants to play, what do I do?

Great! Register your son for the league and list him as a free agent. He will be placed on a team for the season and join a roster of an existing team. Please be patient with us on this, we may not be able to solidify the team until the week of games beginning because we typically get a lot of late team registrations. We will reach out to you along with the Team Coordinator when your team has been decided!
