“I began coaching because I love kids and want to see them improve not only on the field but also in life. This is what FCA is all about…helping athletes and coaches grow in sport and in faith.”

“FCA has provided an athletic environment for my son to feel included and to experience joy in sport. I am grateful for my son’s involvement and hope other families take advantage of this great experience in our community…”
Coach Ryan will focus on the essentials of becoming Elite in the sport. That includes:
- Developing the correct mindset attacks
- Attacks and finishes to each side of the opponents body
- Short offense and defense
- Leg defense
- Developing a successful ride to breakdown to a turn for back points
- Developing a successful escape.
We will teach, demonstrate and spar the above essentials. The overall goal is to assist each student-athlete to become their best version, understanding that will only happen as each athlete develops a love & respect for the sport through a deliberate and dedicated practice.
Since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes has challenged athletes and coaches to impact the world for Jesus Christ. Camps are a time of “inspiration and perspiration” for athletes and coaches who want to reach their potential through comprehensive athletic, spiritual and leadership training.
Every athlete will be provided the opportunity to explore or grow in their Christian faith. Our camp guest speakers and small group Bible studies will focus on humility, truth and faith.
True competitors encourage each other to greatness. When a competitor is down, they try hard to find the energy to push further to achieve their best. Let’s Go!
Nothing beats a rally cry. It’s the one thing at a competition that everyone can rally around to overcome challenges and accomplish goals. For one moment, everyone joins together for a common purpose: the coach, the athlete, the team and the fans. It motivates the heart. It produces action. It changes the outcome. As Christian Competitors, our Coach has commissioned a rally cry: Let’s Go!
This includes: Facility Rental, Athletic Trainer Costs, Camp T-Shirt and Bible, Professional-level Sports Instruction, and an unforgettable experience for each athlete.
