A. CLAY TEAM SPORTS MINISTRY
CLAY Team Sports Ministry, Inc.'s original name was the Christian League of Athletics for Youth, and quickly became simply known as CLAY. CLAY is a non-denominational Christian organization whose mission is to use the Holy Spirit to shape the spirit of competition. As such, team sponsors are limited to Christian churches. Church sponsors shall be responsible for ensuring compliance with all CLAY rules. Sponsoring churches are strongly encouraged to use CLAY as a complement to existing children's and youth ministry programs, and/or as a springboard to (re)launch vibrant programs that can meet kids where they are and take them on a journey of faith.
Leagues are supported by Paradigm Shift Ministries, but require a local leadership team to oversee day-to-day activities. This leadership team is comprised of every pastor of every sponsor church or their designated CLAY contact person.

The Senior High Division is for tenth, eleventh and twelfth graders who do not play varsity high school basketball. The Senior High Division ends the season with CLAY's unique playoff system, where every team qualifies for the playoffs, and every team has the opportunity to compete for a championship trophy. This is competition at its best, and these players should be expected to rise up and be leaders, mentors and examples to younger players both on and off the court. Senior High players can serve as student coaches with the permission of their Church Sponsor.
