God First


At Colorado Lightning youth basketball, we firmly believe that our purpose extends far beyond the hardwood. As Ephesians 2:10 states, “For we are God’s handwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” We aim to fulfill this calling by keeping God centralized in every element of our program.

Our commitment to Christ-centered coaching starts with leaders who model integrity, compassion and faith-based values learned directly from biblical scripture study. Coaches lead teams in prayer, character development conversations, and devotionals focused on spiritual lessons that build moral fortitude in all facets of life. Players gain motivation through strengthening their relationship with God alongside elite hoops training.

We foster an environment where young athletes encourage one another in faith, standing as a source of inspiration and accountability on their own spiritual walks. Woven together through Christ’s love, our teams reflect a sense of belonging that transcends raised trophies or filled stat sheets. We believe that fulfilling God’s will through using our talents is the ultimate prize both on and off the court.

At Colorado Lightning Basketball Club, we firmly pledge to keep God first in all pursuits – equipping young Christian athletes to activate their faith through sports. Christ will remain chief in our vision, initiatives and hearts as we further His light in this community.
