• THE PALADIN EFFECT: September 2023

    Welcome to The Paladin Effect, Paladin Sports Outreach’s monthly newsletter. Here is what we have going on leading up to the beginning of Fall Sports.


Fall 1 Sports Academies Kick-off Saturday, September 9

Fall 1 Baseball, Softball, T-ball and Soccer Academies kick-off on Saturday, September 9! We can’t wait for an action-packed season of recreational sports at Paladin Sports Outreach! Whether your child is a soccer enthusiast, a budding baseball or softball player, or its their first time playing T-Ball, we have something for everyone on Saturday mornings!

Here are a few reminders:

  • There is no parking on any residential streets. Please park in the main parking lot of Mountain Vista Academy or along San Tan Heights Blvd. There is also an overflow dirt parking lot on the north side of the campus.
  • Visit our tent. We will have apparel, information on clubs sports and of course, would love to pray with or for you!
  • Don’t forget your memory verse. Bring your little athlete by the Team 710 tent to recite their weekly bible verse for a cool prize.
  • Grab a cool treat. Desert Relief will be on hand with tasty treats from their snowball truck.
  • Don’t forget the sunblock. It’s still very warm outside. Bring lots of water, wear lots of sunblock and parents — grab a Paladin hat to keep you looking and feeling cool!
