Youth Leagues & Sports

It's MORE Than A Game

The goal of the Eastview youth sports is to provide a fun environment built around healthy competition for kids, while teaching age appropriate fundamentals of the game and values for life.  Our desire is to help develop the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of each athlete through sports.  You do not have to be a member of Eastview to participate.

The Upward flag football league is for boys and girls from Kindergarten through 5th Grade. We maximize the family schedule by having one hour-long practice each week and one weekly game. The practices are at the same day and time each week, with games held on Saturday.

It's MORE than a game!
