At FCA Lacrosse Broward County, we are committed to the philosophy of Player Over Program. That means we measure success not by the scoreboard, but by the growth and character of our players and families. We call it flourishing. We’ve discovered that putting our players first means that wins come slowly at first, but the scoreboard eventually takes care of itself.
Over the last five years, we’ve been working to create what we believe is the very best environment for young people to experience the game of lacrosse. The founders of FCA Lacrosse Broward County began praying and thinking about starting the program back in 2014, and finally felt like we were ready in 2017. In our first season, summer 2018, we fielded one team of high school boys. After losing every game in our first-ever tournament, we went on to win our next two tournaments outright. Our success, and more importantly the way we won, didn’t go unnoticed and we quickly began receiving messages from families all over South Florida asking if FCA Broward was open to all players. In our third and most recent season, we fielded five teams in boys’ and girls’ middle school and high school divisions with players from Calvary Christian Academy, Piper High School, Sheridan Tech, Cardinal Gibbons, Stoneman Douglas, Pine Crest School, North Broward Prep, Westminster Academy, Pompano Beach Middle and others, taking home the Championship in both Girls High School and Boys High School Divisions of our final tournament.
We would LOVE to have you join this amazing community for our upcoming season! Click the links below, or use the menu at the top to find out more about FCA Lacrosse Broward County. Thanks for stopping by!
The larger Fellowship of Christian Athletes Lacrosse Ministry was officially established in the summer of 1989 with a lacrosse camp at Gettysburg College in Gettysburg, PA, followed by its first outreach breakfast at the US Lacrosse Coaches Convention that December. The first FCA Lacrosse Team competed in the Vail Lacrosse Shoot-Out in July, 1992. The first FCA Lacrosse Staff person was hired in 1999. The ministry has since grown to over 4,000 members and has developed the 4C’s of the FCA Ministry (Coaches, Camps, Campus, Community) to have a significant impact upon the lacrosse community.
The FCA Lacrosse Ministry is for any athlete, coach, fan or friend of the lacrosse community who loves lacrosse and has an openness or desire to grown in his/her relationship with God. FCA is committed to developing “three-dimensional” athletes and coaches who want to fulfill their potential physically, mentally and spiritually.
To see the world impacted for Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes.
To present to coaches and athletes, and all whom they influence, the challenge and adventure of receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, serving Him in their relationships and in the fellowship of the church.
Our relationships will demonstrate steadfast commitment to Jesus Christ and His Word through Integrity, Serving, Teamwork and Excellence.
Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) was founded in 1954 by a high school basketball coach who recognized the incredible influence of athletes and coaches in our society. Specifically, he recognized the potential influence of Christian athletes and coaches who were not ashamed of their faith, and desired to use the platform and influence to be positive role models and share God’s love and truth with others.
FCA is a 501(c) (3) non-profit interdenominational organization promoting positive principles to sports-minded individuals around the globe. FCA is the largest sports ministry in the world. Over 1.5 million athletes and coaches were impacted by FCA in 2006. The FCA Ministry is made up of over 700 staff in 260 field offices across the United States.
