How Chaplains Help Clubs

What do SCA
chaplains do?

Chaplains play a crucial role in providing spiritual, emotional and mental support to athletes, coaches, staff, and their families in local sporting clubs and communities. They are trained to provide appropriate care and support for all that life throws at you. 

SCA chaplains work closely with the club’s leadership to build a healthy community that promotes overall wellbeing on and off the field. In addition to providing care and support to individuals, our chaplains also facilitate the development of sustainable care strategies and provide resources to better equip your community to foster a safe, supportive environment.
