Basketball Team

Holsby’s basketball team, formed of students and staff, is a sports ministry that runs concurrently with the full-year Bible school course. Throughout the year, the Holsby team plays competitively in the Swedish second division league, as well as exhibition games against other local teams. The team members also lead basketball clinics and participate in weekly community outreaches. Participating students attend regular classes and have practices and games during their free time.

This program impacts the lives of many young men. Those who would never set foot in a church gladly get involved in the sport of basketball, and the team has many opportunities to speak truth into the lives of other young athletes.

Basketball Missions

The annual two-week basketball mission trip provides an opportunity for the team to lead clinics and camps, as well as play exhibition games in different countries around Europe. Through this ministry, many people have made decisions to follow Jesus Christ.

Since the basketball program’s inception in 1994, several Holsby alumni have gone on to play in Sweden’s top basketball divisions. These players have made a powerful impact in the local communities, and have had opportunities to share the life of Jesus Christ with their Swedish teammates, youth and families.
