Sports Outreach


The Goal of Knott Avenue Sports is to provide athletic events that build a bridge with our friends, neighbors, and co-workers so the Good News of Jesus Christ can be shared and demonstrated in a fun and relaxed way.


Knott Avenue Sports is on hiatus now but you can mark your calendars for the Adult Co-ed Volleyball League to start in February of 2018. You can talk to Pastor Mike Hammontre about bringing your own team or you can sign up individually and you will be put on a team.  Friends who sign up with friends will always be on the same team. 

Here are some pictures of past action including league champs from the various divisions.


We have an “A” league for our most advanced play for people with a good knowledge and handle on the skills of volleyball, a “B” league for people who are intermediate in their skill levels and a “C” league that is a recreation “Just for fun” league. 

A description of the league levels and skill are below if you want to know where you might fit.


Volleyball Levels

Rate yourself as a 1- 6 player per the descriptions below.  Circle the appropriate level of play on the Knott Avenue Volleyball Registration form when you sign up.  Please be realistic and modest. To ensure that everyone is playing at their ability, you may be moved into a different division if your skills are not aligned with the others in your league.

  • 1’s and 2’s will be in the “C” – Recreation / “Just fun” League
  • 3’s and 4’s will be in the “B” – Intermediate League
  • 5’s and 6’s will be in the “A” – Advanced League.
