Athletic Programs

Each year over 1,000 youth participate in The Salvation Army of Wake County Athletics Programs, learning the importance of team play and good sportsmanship. Always maintaining a Christ-centered atmosphere, there are pre-game devotions and prayers for each sport. Here, children are taught that winning means having fun, learning fundamental skills, and being a part of a team where they make a difference. For more information contact the Red Shield Club at 919-832-6918.
