LEVel One Sports ministry training COMING fall 2021

Join us September 18-22, 2021 in Carlsbad, California!

Our Level One sports ministry training was started in 2004. Every year we take a group of students and watch them develop into a team. The goal of this five day experience is to infuse the nine heart values of the North America Sport Movement onto the hearts of each student and then develop a plan to put them into action!

The focus of Level One Training will cover topics such as:

How to proclaim the Gospel
How to make disciples
How to develop a team
Developing partnerships
Working with the local church
The importance of obedience to the Word
Servant leadership
Reaching the gaps in every city and every country


And we emphasize doing this all through sport and play!
This will be a very active conference – bring your tennis shoes and be prepared to move and grow! Experiential learning is the process we use for reflection and application.

We are a monthly gathering at North Coast Calvary Chapel who cheers each other on, explores new possibilities and joins in challenges together. We are also weekly or occasioned hikers, bikers, runners, walkers, SUPers, swimmers, fitness nerds, golfers, soccer, basketball, tennis, pickleball players and your sport here. We are also disciples who are human. We understand we are body, soul and spirit and that each part of our being needs exercise, nutrition and attention. 

At our monthly gatherings we will stretch and learn ways that will grow us in whatever way we play. Next gathering TBD/8:00am. 

Grit online


Grit Online is our monthly sports Internet broadcast. We will interview athletes and coaches on topics that can help the performance of both team and individual athletes. Grit Online will be more than a devotion, less of a lecture. Discussions will help sports people zero in on one aspect in each segment of their growth as athletes and disciples. 

Join our interest list to receive our monthly content as we dive into this important topic. 

More Info

How can we switch from performance-based identity that leads to anxiety and pressure to meaning, purpose, and joy? Grit Online is for all students, parents, coaches, and others who might be feeling the pressure of school, athletics, and home that leads to a performance based mindset.

Our Grit Team were so looking forward to gathering this fall for Guys & Girls with Grit, but with the new protocols from state and local health officials we have decided to cancel this event for now.

But we aren’t cancelling the information. Like the March Madness tourney we will be filming our panel and speakers without the fans, but making their insight available online!



Thinking outside the box, we are putting KidsGames in a Box! Inside are all the best elements of KidsGames – fun, play, Bible stories and generosity activities.

Offered to families during the school holiday break, we aim for this is to help families discover discipleship together in play, worship, and unique Bible teaching and ways to become a generous family.  

Our boxes are available to ALL and can be shipped anywhere! We had 250 families join us in the summer of 2020 from 5 states and up the coast of California.



KidsGames Presents: Coastal After-School Camp! Coastal After-School Camp is a place for kids to come and be a kid. It’s time for kids to be part of a small group, connecting with peers and with other adults. It’s time to take a break from technology and a time to play.  Also, this is a time for our kids to grow in a relationship with Jesus through learning about the Bible, prayer and serving others.

“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is the serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood”- Fred Rogers

Get tools to share the Gospel in any context and move from simple to serious to significance to spiritual through practicing.

We work as teams in and through sport to equip and train coaches and athletes to be the image of Christ in sport, to reach the unchurched through summer sports camps, to train youth to be leaders now and to partner across the world with sports ministry trips to “go and make disciples. If you want to truly know a person, play a game with them. In one game you see bravery, fear, graciousness and bullying. In one season thrilling triumphs and humbling defeats are experienced. Sports reveals character and can be a vehicle to build character. WLS is a locker room of training and inspiration. Whether in a catalytic event–like KidsGames, the Bridge Conference–or in on going discipleship to athletes, coaches and parents of athletes, WLS works to equip people to become whole persons on the playing field of life.
