The Fellowship of Christian Athletes will be hosting our 3nd annual "Junior Team FCA Select Camp” to coincide with our 9th annual Team FCA weekend, May 31 - June 3rd at Liberty University. The Camp is open to all male players between the ages of 14 and 15 years old (2003- 2004), from both the United States and Canada.
The number of participants is limited to only 42 players so please apply as early as possible by filling out the application form below. Campers will have the opportunity to receive instruction, practice and compete over the 4 day period (Combination of games and practices).
Players will be divided into 2 teams, with 2 coaches per team. Coaching staffs will consist of Professional, NCAA Division 1 and 3 head and assistant coaches, preparatory coaches, and junior and high school coaches. This week-end will be an awesome time of spiritual growth, hockey, and making new friends from around the country.
Players will be staying in the Liberty University dorms with either 1, 2 or 3 roommates based on the sizes of the rooms. All meals will be at the Liberty dining facility or provided by Liberty U. Parents are invited to attend all skating sessions as well as other events that will be identified on the schedule (Family advisory session will be one of the parent events) as open to parents and family.
