Meet Our Team

Re-Creation Athletics is backed by Word of God Church and Ministries International in Columbia, South Carolina. With its large youth congregation, the leaders of WOGCMI felt that students involved in athletics can help to build a better society by teaching them discipline, hard work, and determination. With these core values in mind, Re-Creation Athletics was formed. Our Northwest Arena was designed with the goal of being a respected sports training and recreational facility by utilizing dynamic training programs to provide students with the skills they need to grow, thrive, and transform into champions both in their sport and in the world.
