The goal of the FCA Flag Football program is build godly young men through their love for the game of football. The program was formed in 2002 to provide an alternative to junior full contact football and to offer a sports specific ministry to community youth while teaching the fundamentals of football and challenging young athletes and coaches to follow Christ.
In 2002, the program had 70 players and eight teams in Sioux Falls. Because of increasing numbers, FCA launched a Brandon league two years ago, with nearly 500 kids and 100 coaches participating. FCA has also partnered with the National Football League’s flag football league, which gives each player their own NFL journey.
Before each game, speakers share topical sports-themed messages based on weekly scripture verse that the players learn and recite in their post-game huddles. Speakers consist of former and current athletes as well as coaches from the community who share their testimonies and a faith-based message.
