Varsity Soccer

Honor God, play fierce and enjoy! Soccer, much like our walk with God, is to be enjoyed with great passion, fearlessness and focus! When these three elements are combined with skill, speed and the tactical knowledge of the game we love, we will always have a recipe for great success. Within our Grace soccer program, we endeavor to wrap these key elements together and balance them with our love for God. All together these “main ingredients” produce our greatest goal, which is to honor God in all that we do! Honor God, play fierce and enjoy!
