GOAL Sports


GOAL Sports is a ministry for members of the downriver community as well as members of First Pres. GOAL stands for God-Oriented-Athletic League. Our aim is for the church to serve Trenton and the surrounding neighborhoods by providing a downriver sports league that has:

  • Positive role models in an encouraging environment
  • Equal playing time for all participants
  • Development of skills through age appropriate drills
  • Good Sportsmanship
  • Economical Cost
  • Convenient practice and play schedule (both occur on the same day)

GOAL Sports is great place for the community to come together, have some fun, and develop relationships. The league is run by volunteer coaches- many of whom are from the church and some who have volunteered because of their past participation in the league. This is a great beginner’s sports league for those with young kids, busy schedules, and a desire to play!
