Welcome to Fort Hunt Youth Lacrosse

 Fort Hunt Youth Lacrosse’s goal is to provide the best possible opportunity for our youth to have fun, learn some valuable life lessons, increase their fitness, and strive to win at this historical North American sport.

Lacrosse, considered America’s first sport, was born of the North American Indian, christened by the French, and adapted and raised by the Canadians.  Modern lacrosse has been embraced by athletes and enthusiasts of the United States and the British Commonwealth for over a century.

The sport of lacrosse is a combination of basketball, soccer and hockey.  Anyone can play lacrosse--the big or the small.  The game requires and rewards coordination and agility, not brawn. - US Lacrosse.

FHYL serves girls and boys in elementary and middle schools who reside in the Fairfax County portion of Alexandria, Virginia (including Fort Belvoir).

Registration is open for the following programs:

FHYL Spring 2017 Coach Registration

Coach,

Thank you for volunteering to coach or assist girl’s and/or boy’s lacrosse!  Fort Hunt expects to have 100 adults coaching 600 players in grades pre-K to 8th and ages 5 to 14 years.  Some adults volunteer to coach in our house boys 8U or girls 1/2 programs.  Others volunteer for our league programs (G7/8, G5/6, G3/4, B14U, B12U, B10U).  League rules require every league coach/assistant must be rostered, registered w/league (code of conduct), have a valid background screening (expiring after June 2017), and complete certain training at a minimum to coach on the sidelines.  Please complete coach registration so we may better communicate using League Athletics instead of individual e-mails.  Completing registration doesn't guarantee assignment as a coach or assistant for a particular team.  Once assistant coaches complete registration, they'll be assigned to their team roster(s) as designated by the lacrosse commissioner.

Please follow this multi-step process by first renewing or joining US Lacrosse membership/insurance thru 2017 season ending in June.  Next re-apply for background screening.  Then Register Online at Fort Hunt Lax web site, and finally complete online training:

  1. Pay $55 for adult lacrosse coach/official insurance by going to www.USLacrosse.org > Click on JOIN > Enter your previously registered e-mail to search for existing membership.  If offered, do not purchase a NCSI background screen as FHYAA has already paid.  Record your Member ID #.  You'll also receive 12-month subscription to Lacrosse Magazine.  Note, USL online workflow is not designed for mobile devices.
  2. Even if you’ve already completed a background screen for FHYL or another organization, re-apply for bi-annual National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI) comprehensive background screening using the Center’s Check it Twice™ product.  Background screen is free to the volunteer.  If your last screen will expire soon, then FHYAA pays the fee.  (5 minutes).
    1. Who:  All coaches and assistants.
    2. You should only be offered to apply for screen if your previous screen has expired or if within 90-days of expiration.
    3. Go to www.ncsisafe.com and click in bottom-left-hand corner on "Start Your Background Screening Now" (not check background screening).
    4. Enter Fort Hunt Self-Registration ID #79111589.
    5. Enter last name, birthdate, SSAN, other personal information, and provide Legal Authorization and Certification.
    6. You should receive a NCSISafe e-mail confirming your background screen information has been submitted for processing.
    7. You may be requested to scan/submit additional information (e.g. driver's license).
  3. Go to www.FortHuntLax.org > Click red button REGISTER NOW > Click drop down for Coaches > 2017 Lacrosse Coach Registration (boys & girls) for persons 18 years or older > Sign in using your previously registered e-mail.  If during Sign In, you’re unsure of your password... instead of creating a new duplicate member account, please enter your e-mail only to receive password reset instructions.  Then registration will walk you thru coaching requirements including:

Verify player's age using US Lacrosse Age Verification Syste

Verify your son's age by using the new US Lacrosse age verification system.

NVYL League rules require:
1.  All players provide valid proof of age to their club commissioner at registration.
2.  Each player’s parent/guardian must certify during registration their player's birth date for boys (grade for girls) and primary residence address.
3.  Each club commissioner shall warrant the ages of all players in club.

Rather than Fort Hunt Youth Lacrosse volunteers collecting and processing proof of age during check-in for player evaluations, please follow the simple steps below to scan/photograph your boy's birth certificate and upload to the new US Lacrosse online age verification system.

Who:  Boy's only in 14U, 12U, 10U, and 8U divisions (excludes scoopers and girls divisions based on grade).

Why:  To ensure that players are grouped appropriately to keep players safe and to help make competition fair.

Cost:  Free.

Process:
1.  Scan or photograph your player's birth certificate, hospital birth letter, dependent ID, state-issued ID, etc.
     -  Concerned about securely transmitting private information via Internet?  Make a copy of document and black out all but player's name and birth date.
2.  Log into www.USLacrosse.org Parent/Guardian account, not your child's.
     -  Forget log in credentials?  Select Forgot My Username > enter parent's name, DoB, zip.
3.  Upload your scan or photo to US Lacrosse online system using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology.
     -  Select My Account > Age Verification > Verify Age Now > select player's name (should be associated with parent/guardian account) > Continue > select document > Continue.
4.  USL will review your documentation, record the birth date in their system and then permanently delete your uploaded document.
5.  You'll receive a confirmation email, and you’re done.  This is a one-time process that is good for the lifetime of your child’s membership.

Secure and Easy To Use:  Age verification uses SSL technology, the standard for transmitting sensitive information online.  US Lacrosse automatically deletes the document immediately after reviewer views it the first time.  In addition, server storage is wiped nightly.  It took me <5 min to scan/upload my child's birth certificate and receive confirmation email.

Alternate options if still concerned about privacy with personal info transmitted securely across Internet or an IT system:

  1. Or send hardcopy document via US Mail to: 2 Loveton Circle, Sparks, MD 21152.  Attention: Susan Kellam, Senior Manager, Member Services.  After Susan opens mail, views document at her desk, and records age as verified, she'll shred document.
  2. Or Fax document to 410-366-6735, and call 410-235-6882 to verify receipt.  Again, Senior Manager Susan Kellam will shred document after she views it.
  3. Photograph and email document as an attachment to  .
  4. You'll receive a confirmation email, and you’re done.  This is a one-time process that is good for the lifetime of your child’s membership.
