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. Our league consists of 3 divisions: Under6 (JK-SK), Under9 (Gr. 1-3), and Under12 (Gr. 4-6). Our 2023 season will run May 15-July 17, but will only consist of the U6 and U9 divisions due to a shortfall of volunteers.
Each night, players can expect a practice, a game, a snack, and a team talk. During these team talks, we take the opportunity to teach our players from the Bible about character qualities that they can use both on and off the field. Registration for Summer 2023 is open for another couple weeks. For more information on the league 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. This summer, we will be running sports camps as well as EPIC camps; a week with a focus on arts and crafts, as well as sports. Registration for Summer Camp 2023 is nearly full!
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 Cup on Fridays. Not only do we have lots of sports, but our afternoons are full of all kinds of activities. From water days and afternoon adventures, to slip-and-slides and crafts, dodge-ball tournaments and wacky scavenger hunts, our camps have something everyone will enjoy.
Our staff are well trained and excited to offer an experience for your child that they won’t soon forget. We 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 from the Bible and give them the opportunity to see for themselves the love and life that is found in God through Jesus; a love and life relevant both on and off the field.
We are looking to hire more staff for this summer. If you or someone you know are looking for a summer job that will have an impact on your fellow staff and the campers, please apply! Contact Onside or Grand River Community Church for more information on working with us this summer.

Men/Youth Floor Hockey
Every 2nd Friday we meet at Elora Public School, 288 Mill St., Elora to play from 7-9 p.m. About 8:15 we take a rest break and this is when the Gospel is shared. This is for all males high school age and up. You should bring your own stick without tape (we can’t mark the gym floor). There are some spare sticks available. You are required to wear non-marking shoes. Bring your own water bottle. Water & Gatorade refills are available.
See Jamie Hauer for a 2022-2023 schedule. There is no cost for Floor Hockey, but if you wish to donate a twoonie ($2) towards our community care fund that will be used to help families in need, that would be appreciated.
