SouthLake founded the Junior Eagles sports ministry in 2004 with the purpose of providing Lake Norman's youth with programs that teach players the fundamentals of team sports while incorporating Christian principles. The Junior Eagles leagues are open to all families in the Lake Norman area. Junior Eagles currently administers JEFA (Jr. Eagle Football Association) in the fall, JEMA (Jr. Eagle Mat Association) in the winter, and JEBA (Jr. Eagle Basketball Association) in the spring.
