Adam Orr Chosen to Lead New FCA-ADK

Adam Orr to lead FCA's Adirondack Program.ROCHESTER, NY – January 5, 2015 – Adam Orr has been selected as head coach for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ newly established youth lacrosse program in the Adirondack Region of New York State.

Solomon Bliss, FCA’s Regional Camp and Team Coordinator, who will serve as the program’s director, has every confidence that Orr is the man for the job: “We have approached Adam with this opportunity for several years, believing that he’s the type of leader we would want in this position. Now that he has accepted the position we are thankful that we waited for the person we believed was the best fit. Adam’s goals are perfectly aligned with FCA’s vision. We appreciate athletes, but we understand that there are also more important things than athletics, and Adam has a good grasp of that.”

Adam Orr has a long coaching history, having coached lacrosse at Queensbury High School for the past fourteen years, as head coach for the past three seasons. He first became acquainted with FCA in 2009 during a national lacrosse convention where he met Sean McNamara, FCA’s Vice President of Field Ministry. In 2011, Orr assisted with an FCA team during one of their Lake Placid tournaments and he is excited about leading the new initiative in the Adirondack region and coaching FCA’s 2023/2024 teams.

“I always had a passion for FCA. The Spirit is strong in me right now, and I want to see this combination of sharing God’s Word and coaching a high level of lacrosse come to fruition in this area. I believe now is the perfect time; the Adirondack region is an area where there are a lot of different clubs and niches for club teams, but no organizations like FCA where we can change lives through the sharing of the Gospel,” he said.

For Adam Orr, the work starts now. “There is a lot to be done to expose the name of FCA and help families in the area understand what it is really about, and how it can impact their lives,” he said.

Bliss anticipates Orr’s involvement will spur the growth of the sport of lacrosse throughout the region. “Not only do we know that Adam has tremendous potential to influence players and their families – who are very excited to see something different coming into the area, but we also believe he will help us grow a coaching staff so we can expand and grow our teams and coaching staff in the Adirondack region,” Bliss said.

The Adirondack Region will be the third location for youth lacrosse, with existing youth teams currently based in Rochester and Syracuse. Teams will be training in the Queensbury area, and will be open to any players from the surrounding communities who are interested in participating.
