Evaluation Info for Registered Girls Players

REGISTER for 2018: http://forthuntlax.org

We are gearing up for the Spring 2018 season and cannot wait to get started. As mentioned in an email a few weeks ago, we will conduct evaluations for grades 3-8 on Saturday, January 20 and Sunday, January 21, 2018 (times below), at the West Potomac Practice Field, weather permitting. Saturday's session will consist of drills/stations, while Sunday's session will be small-sided scrimmages.

We encourage players to attend BOTH sessions Jan 20/21, as it allows evaluators to see them more often and to get more scores in the books. Every year there is a handful of players that - - correctly or incorrectly - - complain about being placed on the wrong level of team. This is not a perfect science, by any means, and our club is run solely by volunteers. We intend to hold an additional day of age-group practices on February 4th to finalize team placement. That also means that there will be a couple weeks between initial evaluations and announcement of teams. Be patient with us, as it translates into a determined process of placing girls on the team that best fits them, developmentally. *Any player wishing to try out for a spot on the A team (our most completitive level team) MUST attend at least 2 of the 3 sessions outlined above.New to lacrosse players are almost always placed on the lower B team in order to correctly learn the fundamentals and develop at a comfortable pace. If you are new to lacrosse (we LOVE new players - - bring a friend, too!), you are welcome to attend evlauations, or may select "New to lacrosse" during online registration and opt not to attend evaluation dates.

For insurance purposes, ALL PLAYERS MUST BE REGISTERED IN ORDER TO ATTEND EVALUATIONS! Your player will not be allowed to participate if she is not registered, so we encourage you to register asap.

SATURDAY, JANUARY 20th (Stations/Drills)

Age Group Check-in/warm-up START FINISH
3/4 grade 11:00am 11:30am 1:00pm
5/6 grade 12:30pm 1:00pm 2:30pm

Greetings from the New Boys Lax Commissioner

To all current and prospective Fort Hunt Youth Lacrosse families:

Welcome!

I am Michael Carucci, newly minted 2018 Boys Lacrosse Commissioner. I will be working closely with Jenn Hare, who has been doing an amazing job as the Girls Commissioner for several years. Many thanks to Glen Chambers, Scott Shaul, John Stamos and all Commissioners-Emeriti for their leadership, passion and hard work.

We are very lucky to have Chris Lohmann serving as Assistant Commissioner. He flew jets in the Marine Corps. Semper Fi!

As for me, I'm into my eighth season coaching Fort Hunt Lax, both girls and boys. My two older kids have graduated FHYL to High School programs (BI and WPHS) and my youngest is a 12U in the program.

I am a former player, Secretary of the Potomac Chapter of US Lacrosse, and a US Lacrosse Coach Development Trainer.

I'm excited to kick off the Spring 2018 season. So far, we have hosted an open-house/brainstorming session on 28 November, and a coaches' clinic and players' clinic on 2 Dec. Those clinics continue on Saturday 9 Dec and Saturday 16 Dec at WPHS turf field. Coaches' clinic runs 11 am to noon; players' clinic noon - 2 pm.

There is no charge. Please come out and have some fun!

In 2018, we will begin adopting the Lacrosse Athlete Development Model (LADM). Please see:

https://www.uslacrosse.org/athlete-development

LADM is a philosophy built on six core values:

  1. Program designed for development
  2. Multi-sport participation
  3. Small-sided and free play
  4. Physical literacy
  5. Trained coaches
  6. Fun & kid-centered

Our coaches will be expected to understand what the model means and how they might use these six values to guide them as coaches, role models, and teachers of our children.

Our parent league, NVYLL, will host a mandatory coach's clinic at Marymount Univ on 11 Feb, starting at 9 am. If you are a prospective coach in 2018, be sure to mark your calendar. Agenda is not firm yet, but should include a keynote address by John Tillman, UMD Men's Lacrosse Head Coach and 2017 National Champion; Rules updates; practice planning; and LADM introduction. With good weather, the Marymount men and women's coaches will have their teams on the turf and show us how they run practices and some of their favorite drills.

Following the NVYLL program, we will hold a U.S. Lacrosse Level 1 clinic, at Marymount, 1 - 4 pm same day (11 Feb).  Registration will be required for both events. There is no charge for the NVYLL clinic. The Level 1 training costs $50 and is reimbursable by NVYLL. Registration URLs are not active yet.

One of our goals this year is to grow the program and the sport. Boys who reside in the footprint of West Potomac, Mount Vernon, Hayfield, and Edison High Schools are eligible to join Fort Hunt Lax. Please pass the word to your friends and neighbors to come check us out. It's the Fastest Game on Two Feet!

Please check these pages often.

Sincerely, Mike Carucci
