Children's and Youth Recreation

Athens First United Methodist Church offers a variety of recreation opportunities throughout the year for children ages 3-18. Our programs are open to all- being a member of our church or any other church is not required!


Our first Flag Football League ran through August 20-October 22 for boys and girls in Kindergarten through grade 2.

Our hope is to teach children the fundamentals of football while growing together in a fun and competitive Christian atmosphere; we look forward to next year's season and hope you'll plan on being a part! 


Our Children’s Basketball league runs from late October through early March and is open to children ages 4-10. Along with learning the game of basketball and building athletic skills, we look forward to families, teams, and coaches growing together in their knowledge of Christ! Registration begins September 12 through October 23.
