Fellowship of Christian Athletes
At our school, FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) is for middle school and high school. We normally meet once or twice a month on Wednesdays after school from 3:35 to 4:15. We have dodgeball, crazy games, a lesson from the Bible and Sports/Guest Speaker/Video/Etc.... We have free pizza and/or ice cream afterwards. We fund the free food by selling pop out of the fridge in my classroom. 1 dollar a soda. We sell before school, after school, and at lunch.
Tom Fogle and Craig Foote have been the FCA leaders (huddle coaches...the group is called a "huddle") for a number of years now. Craig has coached at the large multi-sport FCA camp at Central College in Pella for about the last 12 years. We normally have about four student leaders who assist the huddle, and they have responsibilities to present at meetings as well. There are usually one or two leadership training opportunities for our student leaders during the year. Due to covid, we are meeting only once a month this year.
We also attend the Center Point Urbana large FCA dodgeball tournament every year. We also attend leadership training put on by Eastern Iowa FCA, local group events, and the FCA banquet.
6th graders through 12th grade attend the FCA huddle meeting on Wednesdays. All are invited!
Our first meeting is September 26th, with our last meeting being the 2nd week in May... This is always the pie fight--
