2018 Summer Camp Coach Information

Strong: Fight. Finish. Faith.

Camp verse: “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful.”  2 Timothy 4:7

Camp theme: Athletes are conditioned to be strong both physically and mentally. The measure of greatathletes shows how much faster, stronger and smarter they are than the opponent. But as Christian competitors, we have the game-changing advantage of being spiritually strong.

We serve a strong God, and we are called to be like Him in every area of our lives. God calls us to be solid in our faith, to fight the good fight with perseverance, and surround ourselves with a firm support system in order to finish strong. With Jesus Christ and His Word transforming us daily, we can be strong 24/7!

This page has information for coaches we've invited to AZ FCA's 2018 summer sports camp. Questions? Send us an email.
