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

  • C – Christians
  • R – Raising
  • O – Our
  • S – Sports
  • S – Standards

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 jaymieg@crosschurch.com.
