Grace-St. Luke’s Church leadership is continually monitoring the ongoing developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Each person’s safety and well-being are our priorities and we will continue to monitor and keep you updated during this health situation as it pertains to our sports programs.
The Church Athletic Department provides sports activities for children ages JK - 4th Grades. Currently, we offer:
Grace St. Luke’s Church belongs to several church sports leagues which offer the best all-around conditions for Christian team sports. Our MISSION is to provide: player development through teaching sport fundamentals, athletic competition in a Christ-centered environment, teaching sportsmanship through meaningful playing time, coaching leadership, developing deeper friendships with players, parents and coaches and valuing the safety and wellbeing of all sports participants.
ALL TEAM ROSTERS WILL CHANGE FROM SEASON TO SEASON. The leagues we play in request balanced teams by age, grade and abilty. They encourage players to play on different teams to experience a variety of coaching and player styles. Our players include GSL Church and School Parishioners and Students and many participants from the community and surrounding areas. Our policy is that each child play a minimum of 50% per game, e.g. a player will play a minimum of 2 quarters of a 4 quarter game.
*Efforts are made with GSL Coaches and leagues to accommodate multiple (overlapping) GSL Sports. If you have any questions about practice attendance and game playing time, please refer to the GSL Church “Fairness Policy” (included on the online registrations and under "policies" on the sports website).
To ensure the safety of all our children, volunteer coaches are required to complete the online "Safeguarding God's Children" Course, be fingerprinted and background checked and complete coaches volunteer paperwork with references.
