KANSAS CITY, Mo.—In this current socially-distanced landscape, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA, www.fca.org) is innovating and creatively offering ways to coaches and athletes to connect through #FCAvirtual.

At 3:30 p.m. ET each Wednesday afternoon, FCA hosts its new “Huddle Up!” YouTube events. The global sports gathering features nationally known sports standouts who talk about their faith journeys with viewers.

WHO:      Fellowship of Christian Athletes welcomes Julie Ertz, National Women’s Soccer League player for the Chicago Red Stars; Zach Ertz, Super Bowl-winning tight end for the Philadelphia Eagles, and Carson Wentz, Philadelphia quarterback also on the Super-Bowl winning Eagles squad

WHAT:    “Huddle Up!”—A Global Sports Gathering

WHERE: YouTube.com/fcavideo

WHEN:    3:30 p.m. ET Wednesday, April 15

WHY:       FCA’s new #FCAvirtual initiative brings together coaches and athletes to engage together even when they may not be able to meet in person.

HOW:      Join the Huddle at YouTube.com/fcavideo any time before Wednesday’s event. There, participants can subscribe to the channel and set a reminder for Wednesday afternoon when streaming will begin. Additional “Huddle Up!” events will feature prominent sports figures every Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. ET.

“In this season without sports, FCA hopes these all-in, virtual Huddles will encourage and challenge coaches, athletes, parents and fans who are searching for connection and sports-related content,” said FCA President and CEO Shane Williamson. “Nearly every coach and athlete on every level has experienced disappointment, from cancelled tournaments, ended seasons and the loss of camaraderie with their teams. It is comforting to know that professional athletes at the highest level share these struggles as well and that they rely on Jesus for peace and guidance.”

For the “Huddle Up!” initiative, FCA is partnering with Professional Athletes Outreach (PAO) and Nations of Coaches. To learn more about #FCAvirtual, visit www.fca.org/virtual, or #FCAvirtual on Twitter and Instagram.
