Passion FC Young Leaders

The Passion FC Young Leaders Program is designed for Passion FC players, U14-U19, who will be provided with opportunities and experiences that foster leadership and character development. The program’s intent is for older Passion FC players to realize their potential and build confidence to be leaders on and off the field, while promoting principles of servant, Christ-like character through mentorship and TeamTalks.



Applications for the Young Leaders Program are open to all players age U14-U19 in Passion FC. All interested players must fill out a program application and program directors will determine the leaders selected to the program.

  • Help keep kids focused.  

  • Help clean-up cones, pinnies, and goals.

  • Help keep equipment organized, cleaned and ready for next session.

  • The program utilizes cross-age mentorship and volunteer work to create leadership opportunities. Young Leaders will be assigned to work with a specific Passion FC coach. Cross-age teaching techniques will be utilized because research has shown pre-adolescents and young children look up to and want to emulate teenagers/pre-teens. Because of this, our Young Leaders will have strong influences on the younger players’ behaviors in the club. In turn, cross-age teaching will help our Young Leaders enhance their own soccer understanding, but more importantly, develop their leadership skills. Young Leaders will be responsible for answering weekly TeamTalk questions, recording their experience, and monitoring their 5 Principles of Responsibility and Leadership (Based on the On Goal “Total Player”).
