Here at First Baptist we currently host two sports leagues.

In January-February we host a Basketball League for kids in grades K-6.

In September-November we host a Flag Football League for kids in grades 1-6.

These leagues are open to both girls and boys, and both leagues are accompanied by a cheer leading team. Our leagues are a ministry first and a sports league second. We use the Upward Progress approach to coach and teach the total athlete. Our goal is to help every participant develop mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially.

  • Mentally – Making wise decisions through learning game rules and understanding the objectives of play
  • Athletically – Improving physical ability through athletic foundations and structured activities
  • Spiritually – Understanding Christ’s plan through intentional character lessons and discovering your young athlete’s part in God’s Big Story
  • Socially – Fostering healthy relationships through sportsmanship and putting others before themselves

We hope you and your kids enjoy our leagues.  Click here for background on Upward Sports.
