In a post criticizing "hating" on your club, you hated on someone's son, then hated on the moderator for not censoring free speech.

Travel expenses no. But I agree that the fees for the White teams should be less than that of the Blue teams as they don't play in the same caliber of tournaments meaning the entry fees are less.

Well considering in their last 3 HOCO games they beat BLC, blew out Crabs and easily beat Dbacks they were already pretty good at the end of spring. Almost half the team turned over. Guess we'll see come spring.

FCA 2021 team has 5-8 new players and the FCA 2022 team has 5-8 new players as well from what I have heard.

Haven't seen any updated rosters for FCA yet, but just went through the recently releaed IL Recruiting Issue which has the Inside Lacrosse Top Players List for 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020's.

2020: Daniel Kelly – 5, Cole Herbert – 6, Jack Koras – 9, Jackson Marshall – 11, Jack Stuzin – 17
2019: Grant Mitchell – 18, Jake Snyder - 23, Parker Byrd – 29, Hank Bethel – 31
2018: Jacob Kelly – 9, Zach Green – 62, Jack Connelly – 78, George Walsh – 74
2017: Brendan Curry – 48, Jake Stout – 63, Wade Oursler – 69, Preston Heard 83

That's pretty impressive for one club. I've seen Crabs and other clubs have several listed, but most will have a down year mixed in.

Herbert, the 2020 double holdback. He should be graduating this year. His name wouldn't be anywhere on this list otherwise.

Even more impressive for FCA, 8 of the top 25 kids in whole class were on one team. The 2020 FCA National Team that laid waste to Lake Placid had 8 of these kids on one squad. #funtowatch!

You do realize that anyone on FCA that is a holdback made that decision before they played for FCA or FCA club existed. So if a kid a holdback should clubs shun them? Clubs aren't making these decisions. Parents are.

And parents should be ashamed of themselves. Age based youth lacrosse would put an end to this nonsense. Who is fighting this change? Who was opposed to the ER change. The "elite" club teams that that line their pockets by selling the dream...

Hey - at least they will have fun in college taking paper classes....

Shocker that the scholarship went to a Kelly! What a joke!!! A fundraiser that they helped to put on to get their own relative a scholarship. Sounds like someone should be investigated. FCA is a cult created to serve the Kelly's.

Now the above post is 100% accurate. FCA is a front, a scam and lines the pockets of the Kelley's. It has been that way since first set up and has only got much more greedy.

"line the pockets of the Kelley's?" Really? You really do not have a clue. The Kelly family DONATES more $ to this ministry (yes, ministry) than anyone and don't need to line their pockets with this.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: FCA - Fellowship of Christian Athletes - 10/17/17 03:16 PM
Sorry, FCA may be many things, and it may have "Christian" in its name, but it is in no way a ministry. My son played on a FCA team for a few years and we don't have any axes to grind - he had a great experience with his friends. But it's a cut throat high level club team, and they don't let any Christian values get in the way of that.

I'm pretty sure the income from Kelly Insurance dwarfs any income they may receive from fca. They took over the old Fila HQ building.

The Kelly's would party hard all the time. Then they heard about hooking up with FCA and all of a sudden found religion.

100% THIS.

It may as well be called FA, cause there is no part of the Christian values they espouse being actually applied to the team, players or parents. Not that it matters, cause most could care less that religion plays into their marketing. The team is good, they win, so continue playing for them. But please, spare us and anyone with a brain any b.s. about ministry. A prayer circle and reading a bible verse at camp doesn't make you a Christian.

My son was just at an FCA Lacrosse Bible study group last night with several of his teammates that meets weekly. No one said these kids are perfect and don't make mistakes, but FCA clearly has been a "ministry" to my son, myself as a Mom, and our entire family. Oh yeah....and we also like the high-level lacrosse.

Could not agree more with this post! We had a great time with the our boys at both the Clinic prior to the Thumbs Up Game along with the game itself. What an amazing experience for all the boys. Thank you FCA for again showing us it is more than lacrosse!!



Always the highlight of the fallball season! Congrats to John Kelly for being awarded the scholarship!



Shocker that the scholarship went to a Kelly! What a joke!!! A fundraiser that they helped to put on to get their own relative a scholarship. Sounds like someone should be investigated. FCA is a cult created to serve the Kelly's.


Ohio St staff picks the recipient.

I guess you weren't at the MRB event where Coach Myers went into detail why HE chose Johnny Kelly. It was quite touching and showed how incredible of a young man that Johnny is. Such a testament to leaders that FCA produces like U19 Team USA Captain / world champion or UNC National Champions Team Captain. I wonder if the Kelly's paid off FIL and NCAA to win. Maybe they did 9/11...

Have you seen the number of penalties committed by a certain player on the FCA 2020 team? Have you heard the language from the coaches and the parents? Far from being the role models they pretend to be.

Both start sir; sorry you’re miserable with your club and what they offer.
Fca is no different than any other club- they market it well but the same problems exist . what hurts them is training and parent coaching at some of the levels. Think they mean well but they can be hypocritical.

as much as they say its not a feeder to CHC it is, well over half the 2022 team is registered 9th graders at CHC. just own it no worries

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.

spare us the sermon's, as you should do in any business you go out and try to recruit the best players(like everyone does) to play for your club.....you are no better or worse morally than other clubs.........i think most of the programs have coaches that are interested in their kids outside of lacrosse, don't give us the holier than thou routine, just not true

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.

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.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: FCA - Fellowship of Christian Athletes - 04/10/18 11:26 PM
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.

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.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: FCA - Fellowship of Christian Athletes - 04/11/18 01:23 AM
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.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: FCA - Fellowship of Christian Athletes - 04/11/18 12:24 PM
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.

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.


Whoa... that's pretty extreme. I had no idea.

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.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: FCA - Fellowship of Christian Athletes - 04/03/19 01:27 PM
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.

Who could blame them. They have several kids and with the cost of playing club lacrosse and private school tuition?? Gotta do what you gotta do to pay for all that.

Last year standing on the sidelines after a 4th grade game in which my son's team beat FCA I waited for my son. I heard a man say "Jesus F-ing Christ, what the F--- is taking him so long?"

That was some pretty fowl language with kids all around, I turned to see an FCA dad talking to his wife about why their son was taking so long to get off of the field post game.

I guess they were in a hurry to get to sunday mass.

Accused ?? That is Hilarious. The large Kelly Insurance company did work for the Hospital system. They resigned due to,,, they shouldnt be on the board of a Company that does business with you. Which i agree with,
They provided a service to hospital for which that got paid for. You obviously have some agenda. Son didnt make FCA or get into CH ?

The above posts were not mine. You’re correct, no one has been accused just speculation. The big picture is the Kelly family, specifically Senator Kelly helped to privatize UMMC and has been on the board for years. His family all three sons sit on the board of UMMC hospitals. Don’t forget Upper Chesapeake is owned by UMMC. So now they decide to step down because they just now realize they shouldn’t be affiliated with a company because they are board? This goes much deeper than a lacrosse vendetta or just stealing. This goes against all ethics Fit a business, hospital and a State. The most agregious is the amount of money that should have gone to a city that is in dire straits went in to the pockets of companies and board members and politicians. Laws are created so a Monoply doesn’t exist. Not to mention an insurance company paying out Pugh. Laws for Malpractice created so Insurance Companies don’t pay a large amount out to people who need it!

Maybe this is not the forum for this topic but the next time BK wants to say a prayer before a lacrosse game about values and being a good person and teammate...he/they/Kelly family may want to think about human dignity.

Maybe BK should invite the parents of the kids into the prayer circle reminding them what FCA stands for. The coaches should also try not to scream at their own players on how to physically target other team players. And when I say target I mean to injure. They are so far apart from what is on their web site.

Maybe preaching to a bunch of parents and kids before a game about ethics and values before a game doesn’t belong at a lacrosse game. Maybe coaching your kid to hurt someone’s child doesn’t belong either.
BINGO! We both agree👍

This is the exact topic for this forum. Where else should people show their distate for the actions of those on the FCA sideline? This kind of behavior goes on with a lot of other parents and coaches but FCA stands out because FCA stands for Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Those in the organization should be the standard for good sportsmanship and not the symbol for bad youth sports behavior.

The idea that anyone is joining FCA for anything other than winning and possibly playing for Calvert Hall is hilarious.
But when they get a couple losses, the Bibles come out.
Coach loses his cool after a tough loss and you want to crucify him (pun intended) and roast the major booster for the club. That Catholic guilt is too funny.
Him saying what he said is no different than the horrible things the parents are saying about their own kids and teammates during the game.
And I’m tired of hearing he is their coach, and he shouldn’t act like that. They are their parents and they act the same way. The double standard is laughable.

This is someone who knows nothing about FCA and what the club offers and many of the kids that play for FCA are attending other HS. I love the fact that people make assumptions without truly knowing what they are talking about. That's laughable!

“Thou shall not steal”, unless you and your kids are on the board....then take whatever you want. The city has tons on money and the hospitals have no obligation to help the city residents.

To be honest, while the conflict of interest optics are disturbing, no one can make the leap you have without knowing the details involved. For all we know, the Company in question provided great services to the hospitals in question at a fair and competitive market price. If it comes out that the services awarded were priced at a high premium to market then I would agree with you but without that information your conclusions are premature and frankly hurtful. False accusations (see Duke lacrosse) can ruin folks. Let's hope the powers to be give a fair and balanced analysis of the bids awarded to date and the truth isn't obfuscated like it often is.... The Mayor is currently working hard to negotiate a no jail time deal in exchange for a quick resignation. If that happens, this will only confirm Baltimore's and for that matter Maryland's reputation as a "banana republic" state.

Yes, you are correct. Perhaps they Kelly’s recused themselves from any UMMS business decision regarding insurance.
Perhaps the decision was made by a committee that was blind to the names of the insurance companies and awards were based solely on merit.
Perhaps the Kellys provided the insurance at cost as any good Christian would to to heal the sick. As Mathew writes “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.”

Come on, no one expects a for profit company to work for free. The question really is was Kelly Insurance the best vendor (some mix of quality and cost) to bid. Unless you're an expert in the services provided, you don't know. Do the optics look bad, yes but like a coach giving his relatives starting spots, sometimes that's actually the correct call for the Program. Sometimes the coach's kids or nephews are the best players available. My only point is every situation should be evaluated on its own, that's all. Hopefully we won't get another single party state whitewashed investigation by a so called "unbiased" agency or investigator. This State is already a halfway to being a "Banana Republic".

We always laugh at the various FCA pop-ups around the country. No team we have played at the youth level (middle school) has cursed on the field more than FCA Maryland, and its not even close. I have no bone to pick with the organization and am a Christian, but either enforce what you preach or stop preaching it. Locally, a guy just started his own chapter for one team...I watched him get flagged for cursing at a ref in his 5th grade game and then absolutely berating his fifth graders...and now he's opening a new FCA branch. Umm, okay. Guess his "faith journey" had a bump in the road.

Having coached against and watched several FCA teams across different age groups and locations I can say they in no way represent any values whatsoever attributed to Christ. Parents and coaches exhibit zero sportsmanship and do nothing but yell at refs and players on both sides. Should rebrand as FWTA. Fellowship of White Trash Athletics.

5th grade boys do dumb things. Grown men with thin skin who spotlight the comment of a fifth grade boy to try to get the kid in trouble are the ones you need to worry about.

Even by FCA standards, the coaches of the 2026 team are a new low. No issues with most of the players (tons of cheap shots of course, but usually from the lesser players not their studs), but the comments coming from that coaching staff directed at opposing players is almost beyond belief. I think every team that has played them has some story of what the FCA coaches called kids during the game no matter if they are winning or losing.

Have you heard the coaches from the 2027 team? Unreal! Especially at that young age. Couldn't imagine saying some of the stuff these coaches say to 10 and 11 year old kids. But you know...anything for the win. Don't waste your time on player development for the future years when it really matters.

FCA must be doing something right to have this many people commenting negatively .

FCA's who feeds Calvert Hall, has stomped the rest of MIAA last 4 years and will continue too. I guess that has created some bad feelings.

FCA formed when the Calvert Hall varsity coaches realized that they can make FCA a feeder program to Calvert Hall. If you want to play for CH and aren't an exceptional lax player then it is strongly suggested that you play for FCA. FCA gutted Green Turtle lax program as well las Looney's 2017 & 2018 grad years. Green Turtle never really recovered, they tried merging with Laxword but that didn't workout. Looney's did recover in the 2016 & 2020 grad years, with the 2023 year a step behind the top clubs but still competitive.

Thanks for that explanation about local lacrosse history. But what I was getting at is this; there is an international organization named FCA based in Kansas City that has been around for fifty years and is much bigger than lacrosse. Is that organization related to the youth lacrosse teams bearing the initials FCA? and if so, how/why did the international organization get involved in travel lacrosse teams, and don't they police the behavior of people using of their brand?

Such nonsense. Of course age does not matter to adults, but a year difference for boys ages 11 to 14, where kids are growing their fastest, is an advantage.

How about this - why don't YOU have Timothy hit the wall and then try again to compete with kids his own age?

you're right, when they get into the real world. but, why not let kids compete against kids and not young adults or in the case of Calvert Hall adults. Calvert Hall has some of the best collage age kids playing high school ball.

I don’t think holdbacks are the issue at CH; bringing kids in from all over the country on the “Kelly Scholarship” may be. As far as club all goes; FCA is notorious for not developing talent and simply looking for the next best thing.

I don't think any of the better clubs do a very good job of developing talent. Some of the less competitive clubs do a good job, but lose the better kids to the top clubs.

Calver Hall never stops recruiting, they will always look to improve a position. If you are a top player at a certain position and attend CH, you aren't guaranteed a position. Example, my nephew was a defender, one of the best in the Baltimore, played on the top club team and was a D1 commit going into his Junior season. CH coach recruited some out of state defenders who were thought to be better players. Said nephew was going to be benched because of the incoming players from 3 states over.

A good question to ask a varsity coach before attending a school would be, if they recruit from out of state, how many kids on a roster, will you be recruiting every year attempting to find better talent than the current upper classmen on the team. Some schools only recruit for incoming players, once you are on the team, you will only lose your position to another player already in the school or an incoming freshman. Some poor kid shouldn't get cut his senior year because the coach recruited out of state players for one season.

Typical holdback response..While they want everyone to man up,,,they do the opposite and have their son play down. Years ago, We had a name for playing down.


Still do....

I don’t think holdbacks are the issue at CH; bringing kids in from all over the country on the “Kelly Scholarship” may be. As far as club all goes; FCA is notorious for not developing talent and simply looking for the next best thing.

Does the Kelly Scholarship include Healthy Holly books?

you mean Holy?

don't know, but scholarships at some other schools that provide housing for students include free meals!

How do the Calvert Hall club teams look this year? Will the best college aged kids be playing 2022 ball with you guys?

Calver Hall never stops recruiting, they will always look to improve a position. If you are a top player at a certain position and attend CH, you aren't guaranteed a position. Example, my nephew was a defender, one of the best in the Baltimore, played on the top club team and was a D1 commit going into his Junior season. CH coach recruited some out of state defenders who were thought to be better players. Said nephew was going to be benched because of the incoming players from 3 states over.

Who is your son, I mean nephew and how did it work out for him. Is he still going D1?

Is it common practice to recruit players and let them live with you? Aren’t there rules against this? Just asking for a friend.

Maybe the Maryland schools should boycott playing CH. isn’t that what they did to St. Francis? Why should it be any different with lacrosse?

Name a decent MIAA school that doesn’t have out of state players.

Yes they will. Win it all again. Cant stop recruiting, coaching and talent they have. McD is trying with boarders and BL with their purchase of future boarding place will help. Rest,,just play for 2nd or 3rd at best

The point is, that a coach should not be recruiting out-of-state players and having them live with him. That doesn’t seem right. There are laws against that in college and it should not be different in high school. CH is not a boarding school. Because CH was so instrumental in ousting St. Francis from their schedule, you would think they would follow the rules. It is ridiculous. It doesn’t always come down to winning and losing. The lack of character is astonishing, just to get a “W”. I hope some of the really great players that sit the bench at CH get a clue and go to school that would like to have them; where they will play and make a difference.

LB does not. Possible that there are boys that come down from southern PA over years. But that's not what you're talking about.

Similarities to Gilman football before they took their act to SF. Things were a bed of roses on Roland Ave for a while but it didn’t end well.

If they can, they all do it now to some extent, and especially the MIAA teams around Balt.. The league is supposed to be for local players and students. The rules are crystal clear on what and what not is allowed. Recruiting out of state clearly not allowed. None of the coaches even pretend like they go by it now.

Character education at its best, as they say.

Difference is that Pogg brought in people that were not like Gilmans main student body. CH is not doing that. CH will thrive as they have for last few years, Time for the rest to break the rules

There is no rule about recruiting out of state. Not in the intent of the league but nothing in the rules.

Been going on in other sports for years..McD wrestling, GCS basketball to name a few.

Why wouldn't an out of state kid wants to go to a school that is #1 in the country in his sport? MIAA just happens to be the best lacrosse conference and CH is the best in that conference. Just bc the kids pick CH and not the others is no reason to bash CH. Not much else to celebrate about Balto. Harbor stinks. Orioles stink. Ravens stink. Hopkins stinks. Towson stinks. At least a HS is getting it right.

You obviously have not read the recruiting rules of MIAA. Clearly no recruiting , but yea, doesn't specifically say out of state.

Go to MIAA site and regulation and Guidelines and then come back.
