About Fort Hunt Youth Lacrosse (“forthuntlax”/FHYL)
At Fort Hunt Youth Lacrosse, we help kids reach their full potential through the great sport of lacrosse.
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!
