Welch College will be fielding men’s and women’s soccer teams starting in the 2018-2019 season, according to Welch Athletic Director Greg Fawbush, who announced the initiative following the first home basketball games in the newly constructed Student Activities Center.

The college currently has intercollegiate teams in women’s volleyball, basketball, and cross country, and men’s cross country, golf, and basketball. Welch College is a member of the National Christian College Athletic Association and competes in the Midwest region.

“It is an exciting time to be part of the Flames athletic department,” Coach Fawbush said. “Soccer is the natural next addition to our sports programs. The sport of soccer has grown in popularity, and we believe it complements our three goals of commitment, character, and courage. The addition of soccer teams gives the college a greater opportunity to invest in the lives of the youth of our denomination.”

For more information on any of the athletic programs, or if you are a student athlete interested in playing soccer, or know of a potential participant, please contact Coach Fawbush at gfawbush@welch.edu.
