Sports Ministry

Our church sports ministry here at Calvary seeks to create a place where boys and girls can worship their Father and Creator through soccer and basketball, regardless of their skill level or experience. Each league is designed to teach our children the wonderful truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ all while promoting an atmosphere of fun and encouraging competition. Both soccer and basketball have age-specific leagues from 4 years old through high school with coaches who are eager to give players both skills to play the game and a love of God.

If you are interested in serving, we have volunteers help with coaching, reffing, the concession stand, and more!

This Week’s Memory Verse and Team Devotion

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ … And… ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Mark 12:30-31 (Shortened for memorization)

Sports Rules & Resources

Interested in learning more about coaching or reffing? Want to learn more about our league? Click below to see our resource page, where you will find a collection of documents, websites, and videos about a variety of topics from league rules to drills for coaches to mechanics for refs. It is a great resource for volunteers as well as parents who are interested in learning more about our league. It also includes a form where you can submit questions.

In summer of 2020, we did a Soccer Camp at Home to give kids soccer drills they could do from home to build their skills. To access these videos, click  the button below.

Updates & Announcements

Games ON for Now – Oct 16

As of this morning, all soccer games are still ON for today. There are storms forecasted for later in the afternoon. As Accuweather is not predicting for them to begin until at least 3pm, we will attempt to have our full schedule of games. We will monitor the situation, and so if you have a later game (especially a 1:30pm game), be checking your email or the website at kids.ccphilly.org/sports for the latest updates. If you do not see an update, we are still playing.
