USA Football
About Us


We are where faith and athletics meet -- to go beyond the game of football. Take the experiences that come with athletics (and some unique to football) and use these to mentor and train young Christian men in how to live the rest of their lives...we are trying to use football as a tool to train young men for adult life!

Serve - Honor - Lead

OUR MISSION:
◾To provide an opportunity for young men who don't have a team for which to play football.
◾To provide a Godly environment for football.
◾To work with disciple-building coaches with a positive coaching style
◾To play high intensity football played with honor…for the Lord and our opponents
◾To disciple young men daily in the Scriptures as part of the football experience
◾To develop players for the next level – in Football and for Life

The Christian Athletic League of America is committed to providing the best all around athletic experience. We will provide great coaching so players learn the best technique and strategy, in a positive and enthusiastic environment. We are offering strong competition, the best of the game itself, without the negative aspects that have permeated some youth sports in America today.

OUR HISTORY: The motivation to form CALA came from a number of factors. We were aware of the struggles some smaller Christian schools face (many students leave Christian education to go to public school for the chance to play sports -- in particular, football). In addition, we knew terrific athletes that happened to be home-schooled without an opportunity to play football due to current Michigan laws prohibiting them from playing sports at their local public school. With the wise counsel of many and with fervent prayer, God made clear the need for this league.

OUR SPIRITUAL FOCUS: We set out to ensure that Spiritual focus would always make us different...we teach how to play football in a God honoring way. Our original motto 'BUILDING LEADERS AND SERVANTS THROUGH THE GAME OF FOOTBALL' has since been condensed to, 'SERVE, HONOR, LEAD'. In today's world of athletics, the prevailing emphasis on winning has developed into a belief that "win at all costs" should be the norm. At CALA we accept winning on the field only as a product of serving our Lord with excellence in everything we do...from the weight room to the training room, our athletes are expected to give of the themselves in a way to honor God.

OUR VISION: Our vision is to simply provide an atmosphere where youth can participate in athletics in a way that has escaped our society. Play hard, play by the rules, respect your opponent and remember there is no 'I' in team.

WHAT WE DO: We provide our clubs with everything they need to be successful. The league purchases and maintains player equipment, rents stadiums, provides liability insurance, handles grievances, educates coaches, manages officials...in essence we provide everything necessary for the game day experience. Beyond these items we assist teams in fundraisers, promote the league and its member clubs in all forms of media, offer discount purchasing opportunities for additional equipment not provided by the league and organize multi-state tournaments and events designed to integrate our teams with teams from other leagues and states.
