Registration Opens September 15, 2023
This registration site is for Tallowood teams ONLY.
BEFORE registering your child, please ensure that any preferred teammates also plan to register through Tallowood.
There are three churches (Tallowood, Chapelwood, and MDPC) that form teams and participate in the Tallowood Kingdom Basketball program. All players on a team MUST register through the same church. A registered player desiring to change church affiliation will need to withdraw (at a penalty, per the refund policy) and then re-register through the desired church.
If you have any doubt about church affiliation, please confirm in advance.
All Tallowood Kingdom Basketball registrations are made using an online registration system, which can be accessed from the link provided below.
A registration fee of $193 per player will be charged, via credit card, during the online registration.
Only a parent or legal guardian can register a child for participation in Tallowood Kingdom Basketball. The registration process includes the signing of both a Waiver and Release of Liability and a Code of Conduct statement. PLEASE review both statements (shown below) before registering.
We recommend using a personal computer or phone, rather than an office device, to access the registration system.
