WHAT YOUR CHILDREN ARE LEARNING – We want to always remind you what our coaches are teaching during the mid-practice huddles. By now, your kids are learning about HUMILITY! But here’s a review of all the topics we have covered so far this season:
  • Weeks 2-4 Cooperation - Two people are better than one. They can help each other in everything they do. Ecclesiastes 4:9
  • Weeks 5-7 Endurance - Blessed is the man who keeps on going when times are hard. After he has come through them, he will receive a crown. James 1:12a
  • Weeks 8-10 Humility - Be free of pride. Think of others as better than yourselves. Philippians 2:3b

More Helpful Upward Info
Our kids flag football programs teach kids football fundamentals in a fun environment that emphasizes sportsmanship, self-esteem and healthy competition.

Cheerleading is becoming more popular throughout North America, and our kids cheerleading programs strive to teach kids the basics in a fun environment. This foundation in cheerleading will help kids cheer successfully at the next level.

Each coach will make fun a priority as they teach kids skills to each child on the squad, and since there are no tryouts, every child will have the chance to bring the crowd to their feet!

Families are busier than ever, so our family-friendly schedule - one-hour games and one-hour practices each week – is designed with you in mind! Because there are no tryouts, each child will have the chance to learn football skills and basics from positive and fun coaches.
