Why flag football? We believe this format does a better job of teaching the true fundamentals of specific positions on the football field. Kids learn how to run routes, drop back to pass, give and receive hand-offs, and pursue the ball carrier on defense--all from DAY ONE. Because we take linemen and blocking out of the equation, we can teach many fundamentals players wouldn't learn elsewhere until much later.
Have an urge to lace up those cleats again? Then dust off that glove and get back out there! Whether you are 25 and just want to throw the ball around, or 40 and want to relive the dream, we just want you OFF THE BENCH and playing softball.
White River Sports is a sports organization and a ministry of White River Christian Church that introduces youth, adults, and families to Christ through the vehicle of Sports.
Formerly known as the Upward Sports Ministry at White River Christian Church, the name change to White River Sports was brought on by the fact that we not only want to connect kids to Christ through sports, rather connect people of all ages, adults, kids, and families who seek and desire to be a part of recreational opportunities in their community.
White River Sports exists to reach our community through athletic competition and wellness programs, in the name of Jesus, who changes lives.
Everyone, young or old, spectator or athlete, official or coach, knows their role and how they are to compete in a Christ-like way when they take the field/court.
