We had a non-secular FCA group at our HS. My son's a Jew and was required to hear the FCA guy out after one practice; meetings thereafter were voluntary so my son opted out. Coach is an evangelical Christian, so there you have it.

I have noticed that many FCA enthusiasts are relocating to Christian schools or leaving high school altogether, so perhaps the organization will have less of a presence on secular high school campuses.

FCA is strong as ever or stronger in the South and Midwest.  I have never been a part of it where it was mandatory.  I do know that many places the sports teams are encouraged to attend but never made to attend.  I don't know that FCA can be anything but a non-secular group.  It is Fellowship of Christian Athletes and as a fellowship of Christian athletes it should never be a secular group.  Secular means activities, or other things that have no religious or spiritual basis.  FCA should always  be presenting Christian (religious or spiritual) remarks or events.  I have been a part of it since the 80's.  It is on almost every HS and college campus in the South and Midwest.  I know it is probably being removed from liberal states and cities but that is not the case where I have been.  But if it is removed from HS or college campuses almost all other extra-curricular activities and organizations will have to be removed also.
