Long Description: The most important mission of our program is to keep our kids off the streets and out of trouble. We prioritize relationship building within our community. Winning is not the goal; the goal is to enhance our lifestyles – to grow together as a community built on healthy relationships and positive energy. On a weekly basis, we demonstrate how people pulling in the same direction can do more than a man or woman alone.

This program connects players with positive role models from the community; we’ve worked closely with the Worcester Police Department and embrace interaction and support from the public. When it comes to practice, our players come together in fellowship. Every single meeting, we pray together, play together, and win or lose together. The congregation is strengthened in community and in future leadership by sharing these common goals.

Our program builds a team, promotes community building and future leadership, and encourages exercise and healthy living. Last years’ success, proved that kids can work together to foster teamwork between present and future generations. We use these skills to support the Wesley United Methodist Church and promote youth programs that nurture more of this learning. Our team is made up of multicultural youths, both male and female, Ghanaian, Nigerian, Liberian, Jamaican, Hispanic, and Caucasian. The youth eager to play competitive, vigorous sports ranging in ages from 9-15 years of age. Economically, the team has players who predominantly come from the middle and low income brackets.
