We believe every child is a gift from God! Our mission is to promote a winning and positive learning atmosphere. This is a non-competitive OPEN COMMUNITY league where volunteers are from our community and our neighborhood churches in the valley. Since 2005, we have partnered with the community to bring a recreation league, fun for the entire family.
All the games and practices are  held here at Family Life Church in Hermitage, PA, with assistance from our volunteers, along with many area churches and community leaders.
