Youth Soccer League

Faith Community Center provides youth soccer leagues that are available to everyone in the community.

Philosophy

We exist to instill character traits, heart attitudes, and soccer skills that will honor God on the field and in all of life's situations. 

We strive to help participants recognize that the person and the team that gives a great effort physically and spiritually is the ultimate winner who will earn the respect of those watching.

Practices & Expectations

All players must attend the practice time in order to play in the game that day.

We suggest that each child have soccer cleats (rubber cleats, no toe cleat) and shin guards.

Coaching

Players will have fun while learning the rules, strategies, and fundamentals of the game; but we also focus on important life skills and character traits such as responsibility, teamwork, communication, and leadership. Each player will have a Christian role model in their coach to demonstrate these qualities.
