Seven goals of achievement from Higher Goal Sports:

1.  Allow each child opportunity to hear the message of salvation and provide a devotion each week to develop greater faith in your children.
2.  Higher Goal Sports is a free outreach to our community dedicated to high quality training in sports and building godly character in your children.
3.  Teach kids that how we live, we play and how we play, we live.
4.  Scores will not be kept for younger kids, but will be for older kids in order to teach competitiveness and how to handle winning and losing.
5.  We practice and train for 1/2 hour before all games.  All children are closely supervised and nurtured in a godly environment for their well being and growth.
6.  Sport sessions will be 6-8 weeks long three times a year.  Multiple teams will be developed depending on sign-up.  Please get the word out and it's FREE.
7.  Kids have a lot of fun and make new friends.
