Drop in Sports

Open to everyone 16+

While they generally require a little previous knowledge of the sport, all skill levels are welcome. If you're brand new to the sport and would like to learn, we can connect you with a member of our team to join you at drop-in. We enjoy sports, competition, and comradery, but everything we do is for the glory of God, and so each night starts with prayer.

Currently we offer drop-ins for: pickleball, basketball, men's 40+ basketball, and volleyball.
