Since 2015, we have partnered with Onside Athletics to offer a soccer league for children in grades JK-6. Our league continues to grow each year and is accessible to players of all skill levels. Our coaches are volunteers from the church as well as the community and have a lot to offer each player. We host our league on the fields of the Elora Public School. Our season is 10 weeks long from May to July. We run Monday nights and each night includes a practice, a game, a snack, and a team talk. During these team talks, we take the opportunity to teach our players about character qualities that they can use both on and off the field. Registration for Summer 2021 will open in January 2021. For more information or to register for the league, please contact us or see the link at the bottom of this page.
Summer Sports Camp
Along with our soccer league, since 2016, we have also partnered with Onside Athletics to offer Summer Sports Camps for children in grades 1-6. While things looked a lot different this past summer, we were so grateful to be able to run another 6 weeks of camp! We plan to run another 6 weeks of camp in Summer 2021, during the months of July and August. They will consist of ball hockey, soccer, and lacrosse camps, and there could be the potential for more sports this summer as well. Registration for Summer Camp 2021 will open in January of 2021.
Camp runs Monday to Friday, 9:00am to 4:00pm. Our camps are action-packed. We run a week-long tournament in the mornings along with a different team challenge each day. Teams will compete throughout the week in order to hoist the Onside Cup at the end of day Thursday. Not only do we have lots of sports, but our afternoons are full of all kinds of activities. From swimming, splash pads, and slip-and-slides, to dodge-ball tournaments and wacky scavenger hunts, our camps have something everyone will enjoy. And each Friday, we will spend the whole day at Bingeman’s in Kitchener!
Please see Onside's new Health and Safety Policies and Procedures for changes to our regular programming.
Our staff are well trained and excited to offer an experience for your child that they won’t soon forget. Our staff are committed to care for the well-being of each child. We hold safety in high regard and take every opportunity to invest in each player, no matter their level of skill or interest in activities. We also take the opportunity each day to share with our players character traits that are of the utmost importance both on and off the field, and which have been best displayed in the person of Jesus.

Covid-19 and Our Summer Sports Programs
At this time, we hope to start our league on May 24th, 2021, however, this date is dependent upon direct approval from Public Health. Also, while we hope to be able to host our league on the grounds of Elora Public School, we just don't know if it will be available at this time. If conditions make this date or location impossible, we will re-evaluate closer to that time as to a new possible start date or location. Further updates will be given to our volunteers and participants as necessary.
Camps for Summer 2021 are planned to start the first week of July, upon the approval of Public Health and the Government of Ontario. Be sure to check back regularly for further updates.
