Behind The Bands: Play As One

At a young age, athletes are made to believe that their value is based on game performance. As a result, they judge themselves based on the minutes they play and what the scoreboard reads. While performance and winning may seem important, there is so much more to an athlete than statistics. Luckily, some people are focused on reversing this way of learning. One of those groups is the Play As One organization.

Field of Faith

Play As One (Field of Faith) is an athletics institution based out of Escondido, CA. The organization is un by a group of dedicated Christian coaches who use the power of faith to inspire greatness. Through this medium, the Play As One coaches work to bring out the best in their athletes without stressing individual performance. Consequently, participating athletes learn incredible values they can apply on and off the field.

Field of Faith offers 4 different seasons of sports to keep their community youth active all year long. Athletes have the option to play flag football, basketball, volleyball, soccer, or participate in the organization’s summer camp program. No matter what sport or activity it is, these young athletes are guaranteed to gain value from the experience.

SuperFest 2020

Play As One recently held its first annual “SuperFest” event which drew a crowd of over 700 people. The family-friendly event was put together for kids and families of all ages to have fun and celebrate faith. SuperFest featured live music, a variety of fun activities and a motivational pep rally run by a collection of professional athletes.

Above all, the pep rally was a great part of the event because it spoke to the overall mission of the organization. Attendees were able to hear from accomplished athletes about their careers and how God plays a role in their lives. Likewise, young athletes in the community were able to see the success you can have when you have faith on your side.

“We wanted to provide our community with an opportunity to experience God’s love. One way of doing that was to create a free event for Escondido to hear how God has changed the lives of professional athletes and so many others in this community.”
