FCA Announcement

We wanted to let everyone know that one of our umpires, Robert Hicks,  is now a Representative of the FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes)  If your team has played with us before, you know it is very important for us to take a little time on Sundays and hold our Devotions.  Over the last few years Robert has taken a leading role in handling the Devotions at his park and we are very proud to announce that he has joined the FCA.  We have strong FCA support in the Burlington NC area led by Alex Mebane and we look forward to Robert doing the same in the Southside of Virginia.  We have below a letter Robert wrote to send out to our Got Game Nation.  Please feel free to contact him by email at and we have included a LINK below if you would like to donate.  The FCA has many great items that their representatives can mail out but they need support to do so.  Alex has received great support from our teams in NC and Virginia and we hope that Robert will receive the same.




My name is Robert Hicks. I am an umpire with Got Game. I really enjoy umpiring with this organization. Larry and Tim do a wonderful job and they are in the sport for the right reasons. The game is about the kids. I am blessed because they allow a devotion to be done on Sunday mornings after the first game. I also work with the FCA (Fellowship of Christians Athletes). Here is a little more about my area.

As the Southside VA area representative, I look forward to working with the coaches, athletes, their families, teachers and all individuals involved in bringing the influence of the FCA to Halifax County, Patrick County, Henry County, and Pittsylvania counties and the City of Danville. My mission is to engage all who are touched by our work for God so that they may come to know Christ as their Lord and Savior. I have always had an extreme passion for sports and by using sports as a platform to point others to Jesus Christ is a win-win for us all.

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost.” (Matthew 28:19 NIV)

If anyone of one would be interested in knowing more about the FCA I would love the opportunity to share my vision with you. If you are interested in supporting my ministry on the Southside of Virginia please let me know. I am also attaching a link at the bottom that you can go to for donations.
