What is FCA Warrior Football?

The FCA Warriors is a local traveling 11v11 high school football team for private school, homeschool, and public school students in the Fox Valley area (Elgin, IL). The team competes in a traditional fall football season. Training takes place in the late spring and summer months. We hold firm to the biblical values that we see in Galatians 2:20 to Live, Lead, and Win for Christ! We have the privilege of playing home games at Westminster Christian School in Elgin, IL.

Inaugural Season, 2022

In its first official season, the team finished with a record of 1-2. After gathering a roster of over 20 players, they were able to compete in a few games to begin what has now become our FCA Warrior Football team. By God's grace, the roster, coaching staff, and volunteer team has continued to grow.

In many cases, football players are viewed as hometown heroes. Our mission is to lead the team in using that influence for God's glory. We are committed to ensuring that the coaches and players are equipped in not only the x's and o's of the game, but also in how to live, lead, and win for Christ.  

Coaching Staff

Our Coaching Staff is full of godly leaders committed to encouraging your athlete towards what it means to live, lead and win for Christ.
