About Central Sports

Fun 

We strive for all our sports to be fun! Statistics show 75% of kids who quit sports by the age of 14 do so because it is no longer fun. From practices to games to devotionals, we want Central sports to be a fun experience for the players. God is the creator of fun and we want learning about Him and His son Jesus to be fun.

Growth

Our goal is that each player grows in the sport. We want them to develop skills, talent, sportsmanship and discipline throughout the season and be a better player from week 1 through week 10. We also want the players and parents to grow in their relationships with Christ throughout the season. If the player or family doesn’t know Jesus, we want them to come to know Him by the end of the season. If they already know Him, we want that relationship to be deepened during the season.

Respect

Part of the game in each sport is an opponent. We want all players to play to win while respecting their opponents during each game. Modeling and teaching sportsmanship in an important part of all Central sports programs. Jesus told us to love others (John 15:12), even our enemies (Matthew 5:44)

The rules will be explained and we will run a few scrimmages so players can see how the games will work. There is no charge to come play during the exhibition.

The season will be March 16th & 17th – April 27th & 28th from 6-9 PM in the FLC gym, depending on what night your team plays. Check back for additional scheduling information.

What is Wiffle Ball?

Wiffle Ball is a variation of the sport of baseball designed for indoor play in confined areas. The game is played using a perforated plastic ball, a pitching machine, and an official Moonshot bat.

How much activity is there?

The only movement that takes place will be in the field. There is no base running. Players will have to throw the ball at a 5X6 ft first base to determine if the batter is out or safe.

Do I need to provide any equipment?

Central will provide all of the equipment. Bring tennis shoes and athletic apparel.

How do teams work?

Teams will consist of 5-8 players. Only 5 will be in the field at a time, but teams may rotate players in the field. All 8 players can be in the batting lineup with no rotation required.

A player does not have to play every game, but will be expected to pay for an entire season.
