The Soccer program at Faith Academy exists to provide young men the opportunity to learn life lessons through the game of soccer, and to strive for spiritual and physical strength while competing in a structured and driven environment. Athletes not only learn these lessons, but are also heavily instructed in the technical and tactical aspects of this wonderful game. It is the goal of this program that when young men and women leave Faith Academy, they are well rounded in the game as well as in life, and are fully able to lead and impact the world around them.
The motto for our teams this season is “Fortitude” based on the verse, Galatians 6:9. A season, much like life sometimes, can feel long and difficult. But we are encouraged in this verse to persevere and push through. If we do, we will receive great rewards. We understand that wins are good rewards, but we know that the Bible is speaking of far greater rewards in Heaven. Those are rewards that last for eternity. This season, our athletes will be pushed to their limits. They will struggle at times. But they will learn to push through and continue to press on. And in so doing…they will reap great rewards.
“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”
