WHAT IS THE CAPTAINS PROGRAM?
An essential aspect of the FCA MD Club purpose is to “develop Christ-centered leaders in the lacrosse community who maximize their God-given purpose and potential on and off the field.” Captains are the future huddle leaders, coaches and ambassadors of FCA Lacrosse. The Captains Program develops, trains and equips current and former FCA MD Lacrosse players for leadership within the FCA MD Lacrosse Ministry. By providing opportunities to engage in the different areas of FCA Club ministry, captains will grow as leaders who strive to fulfill the FCA vision of “seeing the world impacted for Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes.”
