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.
All coaches must submit an application each season.
2. Background Check
These expire every two years. All new coaches must fill out a background check. Returning coaches will be notified if their form has expired.
3. Coaches Development
Attend one of the mandatory meetings; dates are listed below. If coaches cannot attend one of the meetings, they will have to watch a recorded coaches development meeting and answer a questionnaire.
4. Follow Up
Istrouma will follow up with every coach once forms have been submitted.
BASEBALL & SOFTBALL
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.
