For Churches

Invite your Church’s Children & Youth Ministry to Healing Grove Sports Summer Program!

Building intergenerational relationships is critical to reaching the next generation of kids. Healing Grove Sports wants to partner with your church to help grow the faith of your kids! Our staff has more than 20 years of experience in children, youth and sports ministry, and so we know how hard children’s and youth ministry can be. Healing Grove sports is an easy and effective way to build community and build faith within your kids and youth ministries!

Pick a week for your church, and then invite all of your children ministry and youth ministry students (ages 6-13 years old) to participate! We’ll walk with you through every step of the process to make it easy for your leaders and families!

How it works:

  • Select a week during the summer for your church to participate
    • June 3 to Aug 2, 2024
    • 9am to 12pm
    • Tamien Park, 1137 Lick Ave San Jose CA 95110
  • Students can pick either Soccer or Volleyball focus for the week.
  • Healing Grove Sports will provide a customizable information packet that you can share with parents at your church (paper brochures, graphics for emails, and a promotional video).
  • Invite your kids to participate!
    • There are two ways you can take reservations:
      • 1) You can purchase a block of spots for your church, and then have your families sign up through your church’s RSVP or church management system.
      • 2) Healing Grove Sports can provide a customized link where families at your church can sign up and provide payment directly with Healing Grove Sports.
  • (optional) Invite High School youth and adults in your church to volunteer. While this isn’t required, it’s a great way to provide opportunities for intergenerational relationships! High Schoolers need to be going into their Junior year in order to volunteer (and this activity does count for volunteer hours).
    • Adults will need to be fingerprinted and take a child sport safety training course online.
  • Everyday, our program ends with a short gospel message provided by the Healing Grove Youth Pastor, Louie Bustos. Your kids will be inspired by the gospel to be champions in life and faith!
  • Every paying child from your church will support one low income child from the Washington Guadalupe Community
    • This is a perfect way to get your kids involved in ministry and to make diverse relationships with kids from different socio-economic backgrounds!

Cost and how to sign up

The cost of the summer sports camp is $175 per week per student.

Each church’s situation is unique. We’ll work with you and your youth or children’s ministry to setup the best possible experience!

Are there family discounts?

Unfortunately, we aren’t able to provide family discounts. Because every paying player funds one low income player from the Washington/Guadalupe community, we are unable to provide discounts.
