The hearts of coaches
and wrestlers matter!
WHO WE ARE
At FCA Wrestling, we are all about reaching the hearts of coaches and wrestlers. We believe the current culture of sports offers a tremendous opportunity to encourage others to look at competition from a new perspective. It’s not just about wins and losses. It’s about understanding what truly defines us—as a coach, as an athlete, as a person. It’s a perspective that changes everything. We invite you to learn more about us and to join us on this exciting journey of reaching hearts and seeing lives changed.
WHY FCA WRESTLING?
We bring the same proven strategies and methods (see Mission & Vision) from FCA’s rich history of ministering to coaches and athletes AND we apply them to the sport-specific ministry of wrestling. We know wrestling. We’ve been wrestlers and wrestling coaches. We understand the dynamics of the sport. Relationships are built on this common ground, and what can develop from there is the driving force of our ministry: To lead every wrestling coach and wrestler into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
WHEN PASSION MEETS OPPORTUNITY
Our passions for wrestling and faith + abundant opportunities = potential for huge impact.

THE FCA STORY
Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) was founded in 1954 and has become one of the leading Christian sports organizations in the world. FCA has been challenging coaches and athletes on the professional, college, high school, junior high and youth levels to use the powerful platform of sport to reach every coach and every athlete with the transforming power of Jesus Christ. In 2008, FCA Wrestling officially began as a sport-specific ministry of FCA, focusing solely on reaching those in the wrestling community. Carl Perry has served as the FCA Wrestling Director since 2011.
