Now accepting 2024 applications until May 15, 2023.
NCFCA began a leadership program several years ago for selected students from across the country to serve two purposes. First, the Student Advisory Council provides an in-depth study of what servant leadership looks like with discussion about ways to practically apply these skills today at home, school, tournaments, or wherever they find themselves. Second, this group serves as an extension of NCFCA’s regional and national leadership teams, interacting with adult leaders on a regular basis to provide insight and input from the student perspective about life in the league. These students serve the league in practical ways at tournaments by welcoming and helping orient new students and their families.
The Student Advisory Council (SAC) consists of representatives, one male and one female, from each region. Qualified students will be at least 16 years old on or before January 1, 2023 and have participated in NCFCA for a minimum of two years (including the current season). Each SAC term runs for one year, from National Championship to National Championship. Commitment for participation includes availability for two teleconference meetings a month from August to June. There are also optional opportunities for onsite meetings at each National Open and the National Championship. Applications are available now and will be accepted through May 15.
Look around you and encourage students in your sphere of influence who exhibit great leadership potential to apply to serve in this way. Remember to watch carefully; it’s not always the student who is winning often or serving in a different leadership role who would be a great fit for this opportunity. The right student should have a genuine desire to contribute to NCFCA in a positive way and to learn more about Jesus’ model of leadership.
