The Fort Hunt Lacrosse Club will be entering its 33rd season in 2022. Since 1989 this club has tought kids to love the fast paced game of lacrosse and to enjoy athletics and competition.
Our club is proud of the value it has brought to the community, in bringing families together, caring for our fields and parks, and working together to educate kids and teach them how to be good human beings.
We are also proud to see many of our alumni go on to play lacrosse at our area high school (e.g., West Potomac HS, Mount Vernon HS, Bishop Ireton, Gonzaga, Saint Stephens, St. Johns, and others), and in college (e.g., UVA, University of Maryland, VMI, Williams College, George Mason, University of North Carolina, Naval Academy, and many others).
In today’s world, video games, “pay to play” sports programs, early sport specialization, and a “win at all costs” mentality can conspire against kids. We believe instead in the age appropriate, long-term athletic development of all of our kids, and are completely against the short term, win at all costs culture.
We work hard to ensure all of our players have a consistently high positive experience
We grow the sport by bringing lacrosse into new areas for boys and girls to try
We study the science of sports and take guidance from our national governing body, U.S. Lacrosse; the U.S. Olympic Committee; and academic institutions like the Aspen Institute and George Washington University.
We follow the governing principles of the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) and the Lacrosse Athlete Development Model (LADM)
We partner with other leadership organizations, like USA Hockey, to improve the condition of youth sports one kid at a time
We have an aggressive and mandatory coach screening and training program to maximize the experience our kids have on the field
We want our kids to get outside, move, sample many sports, compete, and HAVE FUN!
