FBC Soccer League
We are excited about this year’s FBC Children’s Soccer League!
Each Fall, the First Baptist Church of Fort Meade hosts a soccer league for children ages 5 thru 10. It is an environment for fellowship among youth players, as well as adult spectators, designed to create opportunities using the sport of soccer as a platform for evangelism through the teachings of Jesus Christ.
As with any sport, there is a level of competition and a desire to win. We encourage all players to do their very best, follow the rules of sportsmanship, and, above all, have fun. And even though the coaches play an important role in the program, so do the fans on the sidelines … to cheer on the players and support them as they grow physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually. Whether you are a youth player, a coach, or a fan, there is a role for you.
Cost to participate is $25.00 per player. This helps cover the cost of the uniform provided to each player, which includes shorts, socks, and jersey. Shin guards are required for all players. If your child does not have shin guards, they can be purchased at any local sports store, such as Hibbett Sports in Bartow.
Games this season will be held each Saturday at 9am at the church, beginning on January 7. The last game of the season will be on Saturday, February 25. Pre-season practices will be scheduled by coaches during the month of December. Once the season begins, practices will only be one day a week and last approximately one hour, so parents are encouraged to remain at the field during practice time.
We are looking forward to a great season and hope your child will participate in this year’s soccer program.
