As coaches and athletes prepare for the start of the 2022-2023 school year, many reportedly struggle with back-to-school anxieties. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, over 30% of youth aged 13-18 experience an anxiety disorder in their lifetime.
Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA,www.fca.org) is not only aware of this autumn surge of anxiety, but ready to provide coaches and athletes with an outlet to express their back-to-school concerns and find support. FCA offers gatherings called Huddles, as well as numerous efforts toward team unity such as early morning Bible studies and larger, campus-wide events that sincerely share faith and fellowship.
