Bethlehem Sports Program

Our new sports program allows youth in preschool and middle school to be a part of a league that grows together and learns to trust and depend on one another. The program offers basketball and volleyball with hopes to offer more sports by Spring 2019. We also partners with local camps, such as the Alvin Kamara Football Camp, to give our youth as many positive enriching experiences as possible. 

For more information on how to sign up your child, call Demetrius Morgan at (423) 304 - 3891.
