CFPO-PAL Christian Morals

To help us help you instill values in our young people and equip our players with tools to use on and off the field we have developed a set of Christian Values and Morals for weekly discussion with all of our players. These Christian moral messages will be interjected briefly throughout practice. We will use moments when the players are putting equipment on, during drills, before competition etc. Christian Moral messages repetition is important. Examples from football, school, family and friends will be emphasized. We will discuss a different values each week for 10 weeks. Below are the Christian Morals mated with bible versus and quotes from famous people to help us push the importance of being a good man who is part of something bigger than himself.
