By providing opportunities to promote a healthy way of life, we desire to captivate and engage our community, inspire leaders who model the love of Christ, and aid in the spiritual formation of program participants. We believe in fostering a culture that is rich in legacy and thrives on togetherness, achievement, and leadership to encourage fitness and healthy diet.
We believe a healthy community and healthy living go hand-in-hand. The key expression of this vision is Empower Sports—affordable, local sports leagues and wellness opportunities for youth. We currently offer flag football, basketball, soccer, and lacrosse leagues for students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade, annually serving 250 young athletes. Empower Sports also hosts clinics and/or camps throughout the year for each of these sports to improve the fundamental skills of the players. In addition, we offer a triathlon for students in our after school program. Students are able to receive swimming lessons and practice running on a weekly basis. The training culminates with the students participating in their own mini-triathlon to showcase their skills.
Because sports offer a platform to naturally teach and implement important life skills as games are practiced and played, Empower Sports provides a unique opportunity for leaders in the neighborhood and passionate volunteers to aid in the spiritual formation and life skill development of youth.
