2024 VERTICAL SPORTS CAMP

Coaches- many of you have traveled a long way and sacrificed a lot to lead with us this year- we're thankful for your service to the Lord this week!  We’re praying for the personal connection and that you can bring a deep spiritual impact to the campers this year.  As we kick off Sports Camp, take a minute to catch the Mission, Vision, and Values behind Vertical Sports:

MISSION

We inspire and equip youth through sports. Vertical Sports Maui is a donor-funded, volunteer-powered local 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We use the principles involved with skills training to address a player’s individual needs. We provide youth with the opportunities to prepare them for success both on and off the sporting field.

VISION

We aim to develop the total athlete: physical, mental and spiritual. In order for an athlete to close the gap between performance and potential, we must address and develop each of these.

VALUES

World-Class Programs: We strive for excellence in our programs, honoring the Lord and blessing our youth.

Character Building: We see sports as one of the greatest teachers of teamwork, gratitude, perseverance, and tenacity.

Christ Honoring: The love of Jesus compels us to serve others. We believe everyone has been created on purpose and for a purpose. We want to train the greatness to come out. When we compete according to the word of God, by the power of God and for the glory of God, we can close the gap between performance and potential.

Accessible to all: We bring world class programs and make it affordable and accessible to all. Thanks to donor support, we offer scholarships to kids making sure finances do not prohibit participation.
