On behalf of Sunrise Church in Rialto, California, I want to thank you for your interest and more importantly, registering your child to participate in the Sunrise Youth Sports Program. We understand there are other “sports leagues” to choose from; however, they are nothing like what you and your child will experience here in our sports program. Sunrise Youth Sports is a Christ-centered sports program. Our mission is to promote the discovery of Jesus Christ through sports. We do this through our “devotions and scripture learning” time during our practices. We hope to help your child grow in character, confidence, faith and sportsmanship during their personal athletic journeys, and become more than just an athlete.
You may experience coaches in other organizations “cherry-pick” players based on personal preference and skill level, resulting in some players not getting the opportunity to play based on their skill level, and feeling left out. This is usually motivated by the “need to win” attitude from the coach. Sunrise Youth Sports institutes a substitution system that ensures all players get fair opportunity to play, regardless of skill level. The mindset of Sunrise Youth Sports is that you paid for your child to participate. Therefore, your child should get to play! Additionally, we offer a “safe and friendly” environment where your child will have fun learning the basics of the specific sport, be encouraged, and understand “team” concept. We strictly encourage the “Circle of Affirmation” attitude by all, and discourage the “Circle of Criticism” attitude by all.
Interested in volunteering? We currently offer the seasonal sports of basketball, soccer and flag football. Sunrise Youth Sports operates solely on volunteers. We are continually seeking volunteers to help support the ministry. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please feel free to contact me directly, or refer to the website for a list of available positions. We have many positions available based on your time availability or commitment level. We are excited and looking forward to a fun and exciting season. Thank you for your support. Volunteers fuel the Sunrise Youth Sports experience! Christ ignites it!
