The NYC Christian Athletic League is a non-for-profit organization located in the Bronx, NY.
Our mission is to provide recreational means as well as character developing skills to kids in urban areas. We are targeting inner city kids from the ages of 12 to 18. Our goal is to get these kids off the streets and prevent them from giving in to drugs, alcohol and other pressures that kids of today’s society may face.
We are a competitive Youth Christian sports league based upon the principles of Godly integrity, honor and fair play. We strive to demonstrate that athletic excellence can truly be achieved without cheating, breaking the rules, or disparaging our opponents. Furthermore, we seek to build meaningful relationships, teach Biblical principles, and create positive memories that can last a lifetime.
Therefore, all coaches who participate in the league agree to teach and exhibit Christ honoring behaviour during all aspects of competition. It is expected that coaches will instruct and enforce good sportsmanship while correcting inappropriate behaviours such as taunting, cheating, commission of "professional fouls," and/or showing dissension or disrespect towards referees, coaches, players or fans
