FCA Connection Points

Campus Huddles

What: A campus huddle is a small group bible study for athletes from multiple sports teams and all whom they influence.

Where: FCA Campus Huddles are held at various locations on and off campus. This can be in classrooms, auditoriums, gyms, libraries, homes, churches, etc. Meeting sites are selected by local leadership.

When: FCA Campus Huddles are held on campus during non-instructional time. They can also be held off campus. This can be before school, during lunch periods, after school, after practice, in the evening, etc. 

Camps

FCA Camp takes the best attributes of an athletic-focused camp and a spiritual-focused camp and combines them into an athletic/spiritual experience like none other.

 

FCA Camp removes athletes and coaches from the rut and routine of their sport, friends/co-workers and community and places them into an exciting, healthy, athletic environment that allows them to pursue their passion for sport and clearly see and hear the Christ's passion for them.

Coaches

FCA Coaches Ministry is the ministry program to coaches through huddles, events, training and resources.

 

The coach is one of the most influential individuals in our society. It has been said that a coach will influence more people in one year than most people will in a lifetime.

 

FCA seeks to equip and encourage coaches to grow in their faith and become transformational in how they coach their athletes and influence other coaches.
