Introducing Salem’s Game Ready. Life Ready. Basketball Program
For the past couple years, Salem Covenant Church has partnered with Next Level Sports (NLS) to facilitate summer sports camps, along with Movement Mondays and Tumbling Thursdays for preschool-age children during the school year. NLS, which is directed by Shelli Streeper, Salem’s Outreach Director, has a strong reputation for executing their mission of engaging, developing, and leading athletes to their next level. Using the ‘Game Ready. Life Ready.’ curriculum, young athletes are not only learning to move their bodies and how to play various sport games, they are learning how to live out their faith in sports and life.
Encouraged by the success of our budding sport ministry, Salem will be offering a basketball program starting in January for children in preschool, kindergarten, and first grade. Because there is rarely a basketball program option available for this age group, we have a chance to be a niche in the sports world! Most importantly, our goal is that participants will encounter Christ and deepen their faith through their sport experience at Salem Covenant Church.

Jamboree: Saturday, February 25, 2017
For Salem members who have a heart to serve kids and enjoy sports, there are ministry opportunities for you! We need at least four coaches who will help facilitate pre-scripted practice sessions. We also need SUPER FANS! who will cheer on and encourage players at practice sessions and the jamboree. Super fans will also build relationships with family members and other spectators; I like to call it ministering to the bleachers!
