Connect Sports was founded in 2010 by Tez Andrews, Lead Pastor of Connect Church to enhance the community through recreational sports. Connect Sports first served families in the community at Oakview Elementary School, Decatur, GA in 2011.
In 2012, Connect Sports served the community at Exchange Parks Recreation Center in Decatur, GA. Since 2013, Connect Sports has partnered with elementary and middle schools such as Flat Shoals Elementary, Clifton Springs Elementary, Oakview Elementary, Toney Elementary and will serve at Columbia Middle School during the Connect SportsTM 2017 Winter/Spring Basketball & Cheerleading Season (February 4- April 22, 2017).
Over the years, Sponsors of Connect Sports have enhanced the atmosphere in the partnering schools by providing sponsorship of basketball & cheerleading to students, Toiletry, Free Food & clothing to families, Interventional Mentoring to At-Risk Students, Interventional Guidance to Parents, upgrading the Parking Lot at Oakview Elementary School, providing supplies to teachers and staff for Teachers’ Appreciation, and more.
Connect Sports is an outreach ministry seeking to bring families together one child at a time by mentoring youth, training them to be leaders, teaching them life skills thru intense basketball and cheerleading training, tutorial sessions, bible study, exercise, and showing them how to portray sportsmanship in the 9-week season or 1-week summer camps. All participants and their families receive access to resources to encourage them to take the next step on their spiritual journey to grow into a closer relationship with God.
Participants will receive guidance from trained and experienced coaches who utilize a proven structured curriculum. During the season, youth are engaged in healthy competition, and receive positive reinforcement from all involved in the program. We believe it takes a village to raise a child, so we have committed our ministry to working within our local community to help produce young men and women of integrity and character. In the past, several community organizations and individuals have partnered with Connect Sports to provide complimentary eye exams, fitness classes for parents and even sponsorship to send selected youth to Kids Across America Sports Kamps, located in Branson, Missouri.
All volunteers and coaches undergo background checks before serving in the ConnectSports League.
