The recreation ministry at Sharon Church began in 2006. At that point, the only sports offered were basketball and cheerleading and the ministry was very focused on the immediate Ola community. Daryl Sanders led the program to the point where he and Dwayne McClelland teamed up to bring Flag Football to Sharon a few years later. The ministry continued to grow, leading to Kyle McClendon joining the team in 2013; shortly afterwards, Daryl, Dwayne, and Kyle launched Crossover Sports after a long period of prayer and discussion.
Since then, Crossover Sports has grown to offer four sports in four seasons throughout the year: Flag Football, Winter League Basketball and Cheerleading, Soccer, and the Crossover Spring Basketball Tournament—plus camps throughout the year. At this point, Crossover Sports has nearly 1,000 registrants a year and has grown in its reach to the greater McDonough area.
While numbers have grown and the brand has grown, Crossover remains committed to its goal of serving others and positively impacting the lives of others for Christ.
