Welcome to the new C.R.O.S.S. Sports! We are excited you have stopped by to check us out!

After running successful "Upward' leagues for years, we have made the decision to branch out and do our own Cross Church leagues! This allows us to serve the community better by being in control of every aspect of what we offer: from pricing, to controlling biblical content, and modifying rules to make our leagues tailor made to serve out our purpose here in Northwest Arkansas.
What is our purpose you might ask? Our purpose here at Cross Sports can be simply explained by our acronym

We want this league to be different than every other youth league you encounter. And, we whole-heartedly believe youth sports should be more than just about the sport. We believe everything we do in life should be for the glory of God. And, we also want to equip your young athletes with tools and skills they can use in their life and in their walk with Christ. By the end of each season, we want your child to have a greater understanding of Jesus Christ and their unique place and purpose in the Kingdom.

We can only fulfill our purpose at Cross Sports by having strong leadership through willing volunteers as coaches. If you are interested in coaching, please contact Jaymie Gaines at

Refund policy: A full refund may be issued, only if you notify our director, prior to the season start.

Late registration: If a late registration is allowed after Dec 15th, the uniform will not be personalized (if personalization is ordered on any uniform pieces). Late registrants run the possibility of their uniform not being here by the first game. There will also be a $10 late fee.
