Southside Sports Center

Did you know that there is a 14,000 square foot gymnasium with a college standard sports court available to the Kauai southside community?

And not only that, but Southside Sports Center also provides space for a youth ministry & is a FEMA approve hurricane shelter.

We love their motto:

Not Just a Game

Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefit in this life & in the life to come.

And their mission statement as well:

It is a joy for us at Southside Sports Center to share the love of God through the common bond of sports. Perhaps you noticed the statement “not just a game”. We love sports, but we certainly love God…who blessed us with the ability to enjoy life …and sports, fitness, and health are an important part of life. In fact the Bible says, “Bodily exercise is all right, but spiritual exercise is much more important and is a tonic for all you do. So exercise yourself spiritually, and practice being a better Christian because that will help you not only now in this life, but in the next life too.” (1 Timothy 4:8)  So our goal is to offer avenues for you to participate in sports while building friendships and connecting with the church or better yet… a relationship with God. We don’t intend to preach at you while you slam dunk on a buddy. In fact the environment will give you a non-threatening atmosphere to invite friends, neighbors, co-workers, and family members while seizing opportunity to enjoy the game.

Sports currently at the center include:

  • Open Gym Play
  • Vollyball Leagues
  • Pickleball
  • Fitness
  • Yoga
  • Hula
  • Crossfit
  • Futsal (indoor soccer)
  • & Basketball
