Empowering Youth in Ukraine: FC Family of Christ Soccer Academy

Empowering Youth in Ukraine: FC Family of Christ Soccer Academy

In the heart of the Transcarpathian region in Ukraine, a beacon of hope is emerging on the soccer field – FC Family of Christ International. Founded by the highly successful and dedicated coach Rudy, this unapologetically Christian soccer academy is set to make waves not only in the world of sports but also in the lives of young athletes.

Rudy's Winning Soccer Legacy

Rudy's journey as a soccer coach and mentor has been nothing short of remarkable. His U17 Boys team, in the 2021 championship season, achieved an extraordinary feat by remaining undefeated, triumphing in all 24 games of their tournament.

With over 10 years of coaching experience and a passion for developing young talent, Rudy brings a wealth of expertise to FC Family of Christ International.

Building on Strong Foundations

FC Family of Christ International is not just another soccer academy; it is a reflection of the principles that have guided Rudy's life.

Fueled by a charitable spirit, a willingness to serve wherever God leads, integrity, and an unwavering dedication to hard work both on and off the field, the academy is committed to nurturing not only skilled athletes but also individuals of character.

More Than a Soccer Academy

Beyond the soccer field, FC Family of Christ International has a broader mission. Rudy, a former player himself, understands the power of the beautiful game in connecting with young hearts. The academy's outreach extends to children in orphanages, where playing soccer becomes a catalyst for trust, relationship-building, and injecting joy into their daily lives.

Impact Beyond Borders

The roots of Family of Christ International run deep, reaching far beyond the soccer pitch. Since the Russian invasion in February 2022, the organization has played a pivotal role in delivering war-time humanitarian aid and medical supplies to 100 distribution sites across Ukraine. This commitment to making a positive impact reflects the core values of FC Family of Christ International.

Support the FC Family of Christ Soccer Academy

As FC Family of Christ International takes its place in Ukraine, it is not just creating soccer players. It is molding future leaders, instilling values, and fostering a community of like-minded individuals dedicated to making a difference.

Join us on this exciting journey as we kick off a new chapter, empowering dreams and shaping lives through the game at FC Family of Christ International.
