Elementary Patriot League
Understanding the example set by Jesus in Luke 2:52 of increasing “in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man”, Union Grove has established an elementary intramural sports program that includes basketball in the winter and soccer in the spring. The winter program is for students in grades 3 – 6 and the spring program is for students in grades 1 – 6. All teams are coed.
The purpose of our elementary programs is fourfold:
- To teach the students the skills and rules for that particular sport
- To encourage them to develop attitudes of teamwork
- To help them to understand the value in physical activity
- To help them to have fun in an organized setting
All four purposes are accomplished in a godly and Christ-like manner to show the students that in “whatsoever ye do, do it all to the glory of God.”
We want our students to learn the value of hard work, teamwork, sacrifice, obedience, selflessness, determination, discipline, and leadership.
