SPORTS TRAINING & PROGRAMS WITH PURPOSE
Founded in 2015 by Kevin Ratzsch, Eyes Up Sports Ministries provides high level athletic training and programs for youth. Regardless of skill level, our goal is for all children and young adults to learn proper training techniques and to live their lives with purpose. We feel passionately about teaching and coaching to the heart along with the body and mind, to exemplify identity in God, not sports. Players play more care free, in turn raising their level of play.
We train the body, mind and heart of youth through sports so that they may live, learn and play with purpose for Jesus Christ.
For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.
1 Timothy 4:8
"Kevin has taught me so many things I didn’t realize I was capable of. He has helped me not only with my shot, as he is the “Shot Doctor,” he has helped me step up my ball handling skills as well. I was always one of the tallest kids so they played me in the post position. He has helped me realize I’m not only a post player, I have other skills and abilities as well. I went from playing only the post to now being able to play multiple positons. Kevin has taught me that it’s ok to make mistakes since that is what teaches us. Kevin is my role model and he has taught me that my talent is God’s gift to me and what I do with it is my gift back to God."

"Erika has been such an amazing blessing to our family over the years. She has been given a heart for ministering to children and her love for them is incredible. We have attended several of the camps and events that she has planned, which have always been over the top fun. The kids have a great time while also being fed scripturally by the leaders and staff. We love having Erika in our lives!"
