Who We Are

Updated Monday September 12, 2016 by Flames Sports.

Who We Are

Flames sports is the largest faith based, non-profit baseball travel league in West Michigan. Our mission is to teach Jesus Christ by instilling  in youth a balanced approach to baseball in a Christ centered environment, one with the expert coaches and advanced training, so that excellence can be achieved in the game and in life. God has blessed us with the opportunity to work with(hundreds/thousands) of kids since 2001, teaching them about the God who loves them through the game we love. Unlike other travel teams, Flames looks for the right player, the one who wants to play the game the “Flames Way”, which is His way. Therefore, we don’t just select the best talent possible. We look for the “right” talent, combined with the right drive and the right heart.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is to apply the same focused, repetitive development methods used by colleges and pros, establishing good habits and disciplines early in each player’s career. So, each practice and game is framed in prayer, our coaches lead weekly devotions and our coaches challenge the players and their families personally and spiritually with a “ministry talk” at every practice, game, and tournament
