SPORT-SPECIFIC TRAINING: At the beginning of each season, we will host sport specific training for the coaches in the upcoming season. We will provide devotionals, helpful communication methods, vital drills and skills to teach the players at practice, game day coaching tutorials, and much more. This will greatly improve the individual skill level of the player and they will begin to see improvement season-to-season.
COACH DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING: As the lifeblood of our Sports Ministry, our coaches need to be invested in and developed. We want to come alongside them and help them be a disciple of Jesus Christ along with training them on the necessary skills it takes to coach in our leagues. They give their time and energy to coaching others—now it is time for them to be coached! They will see personal growth along with improvements to their coaching ability. This will provide our players better competition and better individual development both on and off the field.
