As we head into Summer our Paladin Club Sports teams continue to see growth on and off the playing surface. Service projects, baptisms and new club programs are the highlight of this month’s newsletter. Scroll down to check out the amazing things that our club teams and players are accomplishing and stay in the loop on all things Paladin!


Our social media team is busy planning some hype campaigns to showcase our club athletes in action and we need your help to make it a success! We want to capture those moments of your kids during games and practices, and we’re inviting you to share your candid snapshots and videos with us. Whether it’s a winning goal, a triumphant high-five, praying with the opposing team or simply the joy of playing their favorite sport, we want to see it all!

By emailing us your images and videos, you’ll not only help us create an engaging social media campaign, but you’ll also give your child the chance to be featured on our official channels, giving them a well-deserved spotlight moment. Plus, it’s a fun way to showcase your pride as a sports parent and show off your child’s achievements! So grab your smartphones, dust off your cameras, and start capturing those special moments!

Please send your photos to and include your child’s name, the sport they play, and any relevant details about the image. To ensure that your images are best suited for our social media platforms, we kindly ask that you submit vertical images as they fit well on most platforms. Thank you for your participation and continued support.

“God is definitely moving within the Paladin organization. I’m looking forward to seeing kids grow in their faith, learn new skills and compete on the baseball field, and see families meet lifelong friends. Baseball is an amazing sport that can teach kids skills not only on the field but in life and when you keep God first, the sky is the limit.”

Our 12U girls are not only doing amazing things on the field but most importantly their growth in Jesus is evident to everyone the girls come in contact with.
