First Naples Sports offers to the families of our local communities a place to play sports where an encouraging atmosphere, character building, skill development, and the sharing of the gospel of Jesus Christ are all integral parts of the program. This ministry of First Naples uses sports to develop young men and women, while teaching them basic fundamental skills in a variety of sports. Our goal is to provide a family-friendly atmosphere through sports for all of our surrounding communities. The sports offered include flag football, soccer, basketball, baseball, and cheerleading. There are also strength and conditioning camps during the summertime.

Our Sports Ministry functions mostly with volunteer parents and coaches to offer various sports and camps throughout the year. It focuses on the developing of sport skills while still giving the opportunity for competition.

All practices and competitions are held on the campus of First Naples under the direction of the Sports Pastor. Many volunteers are from First Naples, but we also have quality parents and friends from all over the community . Well-qualified directors and instructors are used for each sport or camp.
