Skills & Drills


• Our youth sports leagues provide kids with equal playing time and the chance to play every position at a younger age.
• Teams are intended to be created as fair and competitive as possible.
• Teams will be created after late registration is completed.
• Teams will have an awards ceremony after each game.
• Players can request to play with a friend if this is a mutual request and if they are in the same division.
• Players can request a practice preference, but we might not be able to fulfill both a friend and practice request.
• We try our best to place siblings on the same practice night. Because baseball is a different league and there is a lower number of girls teams, we might not be able to place girls on the same practice night as their brothers.
• All coaches are volunteers. Umpires for Boys 9U and Girls divisions are volunteers. Indicate on your child’s registration and click the link below if you are interested in volunteering this season.

• Girls, ages 4-14
• Tentative divisions:
    – 6U (4-6 year olds) : tee ball transition to coaches pitch
    – 9U (7-9 year olds) : coaches pitch
    – 11U (10-11 year olds) : modified coaches pitch
    – 14U (12-14 year olds) : modified kids pitch
• Divisions are based on age by our first game, May 8.
• Divisions depend on how many players are registered at each age.
• Season includes 8 games, 9 practices, and 1 clinic.
• All teams, except our youngest division, will practice once a week on Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday.
• The youngest division, potentially 6U, will attend the clinic and Saturday practice. These teams will practice and play on game days.
• Practices might start at 5:45.
• Saturday games could start between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm.

We are hopeful to have multiple teams in each division. Girls could play on a developmental team if there aren’t enough players or coaches to form a competitive division. If this is the case, all girls in a division might be placed on one team that practices together and plays games against each other.

At ISO, I have always felt like I belonged there. Every time I sign up for anything, it gives me something that I love to do on a weekly basis. I have been at ISO football for six years and I have loved it ever since my first day. I would suggest this facility to anyone who wants to learn the game of their choice. ISO has a variety of sports and it keeps me coming back year after year. Mr. Woodruff, the head of ISO, is always willing to help and talk and he runs a good Christian-based organization. In conclusion, I would suggest this church/sports organization to anyone who wants a God-based sports organization.

The Istrouma sports program is such a blessing to our family. With five children we have experienced several sports organizations in our community and none compare to Istrouma in the benefits our children receive. The intentionality behind the ideals and goals of the program are so honorable and inspirational. The staff and coaches and overall environment of the program are unlike any we have experienced. There is a positive, encouraging, grace filled attitude that trickles down from the top staff all the way to the parents. Having a weekly character trait, prayers before games and singing our nation’s anthem all are just icing on the cake to the way the coaches treat the players. All of these things add up to a top notch program that sets an example for this generation that is much needed in our world of how to play sports, try your hardest and have fun, all for the glory of God. Thank you Istrouma!

We’ve had the privilege of partnering with ISO since 2010.  Its Christ-exalting, family-centered approach has led my kids to understand the value of competing with others on the field, while learning discipline, structure, and steadfastness.  We’ve had 7 kids playing in various sports over the years, and ISO has always prioritized siblings practicing on the same night, which is such a help to us.  I’ve head-coached in the ministry since 2011, and I’m able to unashamedly and very intentionally disciple and lead the kids to by connecting sports principles on the field with biblical values.  Thank you ISO for your dedication to honoring God and providing a healthy competitive environment.

My family and I have been part of ISO for many years. It’s been amazing to see the lives that God has touched through this sports ministry. The experience has been great and I love coaching! As a coach, there are so many blessings that come with developing players’ gifts, talents and character while also teaching them life lessons and biblical principles. I treasure the friendships that I have made through ISO and I’m excited to see how God will continue to use this sports ministry to transform people’s lives and our great city.
