Commissioner: Position Open
We provide competitive athletic programs for the youth of the church and community to play sports in a safe Christian environment. The Athletic Association's mission is to put Christian Principles into practice that create an awareness of the importance of physical and mental fitness, and to improve self confidence, skills and rules of various sports to learn the benefits and responsibilities of being a member of a team and to help develop good self-esteem for the youth of the community.
Currently some of our youth are participating in the Christian Athletic
etball league. The OLC Wildcats can be followed here: http://wearecaa.org
