Dear Team Parents,

We are starting a basketball team called the Illuminators (Team colors are blue and orange chosen to honor Conner Newcomb who passed into the arms of Jesus three years ago). Conner loved the Chicago Bears whose team colors are blue and orange.

We are so glad for your interest. The Illuminators is sponsored by Arts Illuminate Home School Dance and Recreation Youth Center, and will be coached by Sam Arena (An Experienced Youth Sports Coach - See His Biography Below!). 

We have put together a Modified Team that currently includes four players who are all in 8th grade! 

You can watch us play on February 9 at the School of the Deaf, and on March 11 at Conner's Game of Care at Elim Bible Institute. 

Thank you and Go Illuminators!

Sandy, Sam and Caleb Arena
