The goal of the FCA MD Club Program is to provide highly dedicated and skilled youth lacrosse players the opportunity to compete at a high level, develop their skills and God given potential while facilitating intentional opportunities to grow in their relationship with God. To so, with every lacrosse event (i.e. skills and drills, practice, or tournament) there is a ministry component we call a Team Huddle. Our hope that this period of time lead by an FCA Leader is devoted to develop Christ-centered leaders in the lacrosse community who maximize their God-given purpose and potential on and off the field.
As a Club we believe there is more to life than lacrosse. These kids are exposed to situations at a much earlier age. With the rise of social media, drugs and alcohol, and peer pressure our goal with FCA MD Lacrosse is to walk with these players side by side through life and equip these players with a strong foundation that will allow them the comfort and strength to be able to handle any situation that they may face.
Once a week, at the FCA Lacrosse office, 8800 Orchard Tree Lane Towson, MD 21286, the Ministry Coordinators (Matt Emerson and Riley DeSmit) host a community huddle for the high school FCA MD players. Just as the Team Huddles aim to accomplish, though the Community Huddles each High School player has a chance to further to develop their ability to be Christ-centered leaders in the lacrosse community who maximize their God-given purpose and potential on and off the field. This weekly time of fellowship serves as an escape from the busy life of sports, school, and social life and allows a time to continue to grow in their relationship with each other and most importantly Jesus Christ.
