All athletes must turn in a sports physical before being allowed to participate in practices.
FBCA student athletes should strive to be as much like Christ, with the Holy Spirit’s help, on and off the court or field. Just as Jesus gave Himself for us (Phil. 2:8), so should we work to give all we have to Him.
