Welcome to Fort Hunt Youth Lacrosse!

Fall Ball Registration is open!

Boys and Girls

Fort Hunt Youth Lacrosse (FHYL) provides three Fall Ball options (based on age/grade/gender) for beginners through advanced players, and one additional 90 minute "TryLax" clinic designed especially for first time players.

Understanding the impact youth coaches can have on our kids, we aspire to put well-trained coaches on the field with them and host or sponsor instructional opportunities for new and experienced coaches throughout the year.

Welcome to the off-season!

We thank our outgoing Lacrosse Commissioner, Jenn Hare, for three years of passion, dedication, and leadership; leaving us with a healthy program and finishing on a strong note. She is a hard act to follow! Please welcome our new panel of girls lacrosse leadership in Kelly Facer, Erin Hellmold, and Claire Andreas. They can be reached at FHgirlslax18@gmail.com
