FCA Huddles

Since 1954—when FCA began—God has used FCA Huddles to transform the lives of thousands of coaches and athletes. By taking the next steps with us, you will be equipped with the training and resources you need to create an environment in the sports community where the gospel is made known and lived out. FCA offers two types of huddles for athletes: Team Huddles and Multi-Sport Huddles. Both types of huddles can be set up as a community or campus ministry. Find out more and get started on an incredible adventure of faith and fellowship!

Team Huddles

A Team Huddle is a targeted Bible study within a unique individual team setting/environment.

Community

What
A Team Huddle is a targeted study within a unique individual team setting or environment that encourages and challenges team members to live and compete according to biblical principles. The Team Huddle can be organized to include one or both of the following elements:

  • Weekly Team Devotion – organized to occur around practice times or whatever works best for the team schedule.
  • Team Chapel – A game-day gathering designed for athletes and coaches to experience a time of spiritual devotion and fellowship.

Where
The best answer to this question is “Wherever works best for your team.” Team huddles meet in a variety of locations—such as practice facilities or locker rooms—for a brief time before or after practice. Ultimately, this is determined by what works best for the team.

When
The best answer to this question is “Whenever works best for your team.”
