Istrouma Sports is a gospel-centered sports ministry of Istrouma Baptist Church that intentionally creates opportunities to glorify God and make disciples through sports and recreation.
Our ministry thrives from those who volunteer their time to help us do sports a different way.
Coach @ Istrouma
Istrouma Sports has a four-step vetting process for coaches.
Applicants may not be asked to coach.
Our questionnaires on file expire every year. New coaches must watch our development video and complete a questionnaire before applying. Returning coaches do not need to watch the video if they’ve already submitted a questionnaire for a different sport within the past year.
All coaches must submit an application each season.
3. Background Check
Our background checks expire every two years. All new coaches must fill out a background check. Returning coaches will be notified if their form has expired.
Istrouma will follow up with coaches once forms have been submitted.
flag football & volleyball leagues
Watch the video and answer the questionnaire unless you have already submitted a questionnaire for Baseball 2021, Basketball 2021, or Softball 2021. Answer the questionnaire as you watch the video; don’t wait until the video is over.
boys + girls basketball leagues
Officiate @ Istrouma
We are always in need of officials. Parents appreciate when their kids’ games are officiated consistently and confidently. We want to give parents and players the best youth sports experience; a large part of that comes from our officials.
Volunteer @ Istrouma
Genuine ministry occurs through genuine relationships. Our goal is to place one “teammate” on each team in each youth sports league. A teammate is someone who is willing to build relationships with the parents of a particular team during games on Saturdays. A few ways a teammate can help the head coach is by inviting their team to Istrouma Baptist Church, delivering post game devotions, communicating with parents, or developing a snack rotation.
