The adult athletics program is a ministry at Covington Christian | Church on the Round. We aim to glorify God, represent Covington Christian Church and connect others to Jesus Christ through athletic competition.

The adult athletics program fields basketball and softball teams within the Newton County Recreation Commission. To be eligible, prospective participants must be 18 years of age or older by Jan. 1 and must attend a minimum of two church services per month.

Check the events calendar for game dates and times. 


The basketball season began in January 2018. In its six years of existence, Covington Christian has advanced to the league tournament final five times, winning three championships. But this team is about more than just winning. We are striving to live out a witness of good sportsmanship and fun.


The softball season starts in March. We practice at the church ball fields, and our games are at the Stone Road complex in Oxford.
