Can you swish a contested no-look, quick-release buzzer beater from midcourt like Curry?
Can you dig a potential kill from power alley and then come up and six-pack the defense from the outside like Misty May?
Neither can we!
Still, that doesn’t keep us from creating multiple basketball and volleyball teams every year for the summer season of CCU!
CCU is a state-wide Christian organization dedicated to “sharing the Gospel and providing an avenue for Christian evangelism and fellowship through the means of playing organized sports.” To do so, CCU has established three leagues for each of its sports–volleyball, basketball, and softball–to be played every Summer season. NewStart has been a perennially active contender in CCU and is well-respected as an encouraging and Christ-centered yet fierce competitor. Countless of our young leaders and attendees at NewStart have entered through CCU and we hope you’ll be one of them too.
Join the NewStart Crosstrainers and play basketball or volleyball in the Chinese Christian Union’s summer league~

There is no skill requirement to play either sport. However, it is under the discretion of each individual coach to evaluate skill level; at NewStart, we do not care for the label of being “good enough”, but we do want everyone to feel safe and at the same time, to have fun playing with teammates and against opponents of a similar skill level.
The season begins June 6th. Contact Marcus Won, our NewStart Sports Commissioner, at (415-609-8364) or Matthew Won, our CCU Volleyball spiritual leader/coach and CCU liason at (415-794-7838) for more information. See you on the court!
