Athletics

New Life Camp Athletics programs are designed to train players to pursue excellence in both sports competition and their relationship with Christ. Players are challenged in areas of discipline and teamwork while learning life lessons that illustrate the greater truths from God’s Word.

Purpose of Storm Athletics:

Storm Athletics exists to provide athletes an opportunity to pursue excellence in sports for the glory of God by empowering them to live out their faith.

The New Life Storm is the homeschool athletics program of New Life Camp, competing against other home school teams as well as public and private schools in the area. The goal of each team is to honor Christ through athletic excellence. All participants are required to be registered with the North Carolina Department of Non-Public Education (DNPE) in order to participate.

  • Their 19th birthday for Varsity competition
  • Their 17th birthday for Junior Varsity competition
  • Their 14th birthday for middle school competition (15th for MSG Basketball and MSB Soccer). *Note- Players must have reached age 11 by August 1st to be eligible for middle school competition.
