This is my son's first year with FCA and while I don't disagree with what you stated we could not be happier with the team, the coaching and the parents. They may have some 'issues' that you see with other teams; the difference is they address them immediately and do not let it impact the team. Our coaches go out of the way to be a part of the boys lives outside of Lacrosse which you really do not see in other programs. The good far outweigh the bad.

That has been our experience since last Fall; now I know how this forum works so let the bashing of this opinion begin. lol


I agree with what you said about the coaches taking interest in their players lives outside of lacrosse. That speaks volumes to a coach's character. More coaches should take notes on that. You get good things from your players when they get acknowledgment from you. It's just a fact.


VISION

To see the world transformed by Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes.

MISSION

To lead every coach and athlete into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and His church.

VALUES

Our relationships will demonstrate steadfast commitment to Jesus Christ and His Word through Integrity, Serving, Teamwork and Excellence.
Integrity
We will demonstrate Christ-like wholeness, privately and publicly. (Proverbs 11:3)
Serving
We will model Jesus’ example of serving. (John 13:1-17)
Teamwork
We will express our unity in Christ in all our relationships. (Philippians 2:1-4)
Excellence
We will honor and glorify God in all we do. (Colossians 3:23-24)

STRATEGY

To and Through the Coach
We pursue our vision and mission through the strategy of to and through the coach. We seek ministry first to coaches hearts, marriages and families. Then, when ready, we minister through coaches to their fellow coaches, teams and athlete leaders.

Billy Graham said, “A coach will impact more people in one year than the average person will in an entire lifetime.” With the influence of a coach, FCA recognizes the most strategic way to reach more athletes is to first reach the coach.



Let me run something by you. Is it in line with these principles to publicly disparage a group of 7th grade boys and their families by describing them as dirtbags in a Howard County parking lot after your team lost a game? I ask only because the great and holy BK, head of FCA, Calvert Hall varsity coach, and head coach of FCA 23 Blue did just that on Sunday. Before you all go nuts, it is fact. It was witnessed by countless people. If you want to learn how to whine from a hypocrite, go to FCA.


Fake News and and here we go bashing clubs we don’t like. Unreal.

Maybe you should talk to the Looney’s parents that were standing behind the teams bench during the game; my son told me exactly what they were doing and it’s disgraceful.

I like the attempted misdirect but there were no looneys 23 parents behind the fca bench, but even if there were, it still pales in comparison to the HEAD of your club making derogatory remarks about a 7th grade team in a public setting. That is unacceptable and a top to bottom failure of an organization that claims to teach and promote Christian ideals to young men.

This is not fake. It was witnessed by a dozen people. He was out of line. It wasn’t very Christian.

I was not in the parking lot so I can not speak on what happened or did not happen. However I can commmet on what my son heard from the looney parents that were indeed behind the bench during the game. I’ll stand by my club, my sons coach and the Christian ideals it continues to teach each and every day. No one is perfect; not even Christians. So relax and focus on the person in the mirror.

Looney's kids played dirty. And from what I've heard, are coached to play that way. Nice.

That is laughable. Both teams were called for a few penalties and it was FCA that was called for the out of control stick swinging. I guess there is a new book in the New Testament which states it is ok to do and say whatever you want as long as you have Christian in your name.

It was a well played game so I am not sure why there is any controversy; it could have gone either way. It is frustrating to see the back and forth and the cheap shots taken at refs and one's beliefs. I think we are better than that.

Looney's is big all around and FCA had trouble handling that size; middies and attack of Looney's definitely gave them problems and it seemed like their offense just wasn't clicking. Tall attackman for Looney's was a stud and had very good footwork and stick skills. Looney's definitely added some nice pieces and I think could give HAWKS a run for their money this year. FOGO for FCA seems to be the real deal; if he didn't win every face off he made it a 50/50 each time....he isn't big by any means but he fought for each possession; was impressive to watch. FCA definitely has some talent both on attack (#9 and #25) and midfield (#2 and I think #21) but very little size so I see them having trouble with the bigger teams (HAWKS, Next Level) moving forward.

Every club offers something different and its up to you to find what works best for your family. I just wish this forum was more positive instead of the constant bashing and negativity.

Whoa - the Kelly's who run FCA were just kicked off the board at UMMS and accused of taking $16M from the inner city hospital system.

Fca might have the worst parents in dmv lacrosse and they may not know what fca stands for. But the Kelly's didn't "take" money which is implying they may have embezzled it. Their insurance business generated 16 million in revenue from the system. Whether they used undue influence is a different matter.
