- a call to take part in a contest or competition, especially a duel.
This definition for "challenge" includes some words that go right along with fitness training (contest, competition). But there's another important word I'd like to focus on briefly:
It brings to mind two opponents facing off with swords or guns, competing for the sake of honor at the cost of their very lives. I don't expect that scene to happen on our soccer field any time soon (hopefully not!), but you can apply that one-against-one combat image to these Training Challenges. How? By considering each challenge as a fight. Against yourself.
Becoming a competitive soccer player will require you to develop (or improve) your physical, mental and spiritual fitness. It will require you to do more than just show up on game day--you will need to train and prepare in order to compete safely at your highest level, enabling you to contribute to the overall success of your team. These challenges can be part of that training and preparation and by definition, they will be difficult, maybe more difficult than anything you have tried before. But you CAN do them.
The only person who can get in your way is YOU. In fact, the greatest challenge you will face in the coming weeks is that of overcoming your habits, your weaknesses, your excuses, your decisions about how to spend your time.
I am praying for each of you as we start this journey. It will not be easy, but it will be worthwhile.

We'd love to see you there!
What a fantastic weekend of soccer and homeschool fellowship in Ft. Wayne! Despite a rainy start, spirits were high with our players and fans. Both the Boys and Girls teams came ready with their best efforts, resulting in some great successes...
Our young Boys Division 2 team lost its first match with Ft. Wayne Fusion, but turned things around to secure their first win of the season defeating Kokomo Eagles 3-0. And the crowd went wild!!! They followed up with a hard-fought 2-1 win against the Indy Warriors, securing an overall 5th place finish. We're so proud of these fine young men!
The Lady 'Blazers defeated #3 seed Genesis United 2-1, and followed up with another win (1-0) against #2 seed Southside Thunder to advance to the CHAMPIONSHIP game, where they faced #1 seed Ft. Wayne Fusion. They fought valiantly and held the Fusion to only 1 goal in the first half, finishing 2nd in the state. This great group of young ladies certainly proved that they deserved to be in the Championship game.
In addition, two of our players were selected for the 2017 IHSA All-State Team: Claire Soendlin and Elianna Grunden
Congratulations!! And thank you for your leadership and example.
Special thanks to parents and families for helping to make this weekend happen! Your behind-the-scenes support helped create a great experience, enabled some wonderful friendships to develop, and made our Trailblazer soccer family even stronger.
