The Northside Baptist Church Life Changers men’s basketball league is back for another season.

In a new move for the league, Life Changers will be using paid referees this year. Each player will get a new jersey this season, so all jerseys will be the same. Players from 2018 will have an opportunity to keep their jersey number from 2018. Contact Jody Basson at (229) 300-2809 or e-mail with a current picture of yourself to be used for the player draft.

Life Changers also will use the VLPRA gym on Forrest Street for four nights this season.
