Queensbury, NY – August 25, 2016 – This summer The Fellowship of Christian Athletes Lacrosse program expanded into the Adirondack Region, making it the third location for youth lacrosse in the Northeast with existing teams based in Rochester and Syracuse.
FCA’s Camp and Community Coordinator Solomon Bliss commended the efforts of Adam Orr, Queensbury’s Head Lacrosse Coach, who spearheaded the region’s coaching effort for FCA. “If our goal is to help the kids explore and deepen their Christian faith, as well as develop their lacrosse abilities, then we are thrilled to have Adam as our leader in the Adirondack Region, where we are excited to be sharing FCA’s vision of seeing the world impacted for Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes,” Bliss said.
This summer the Adirondack Region team competed in the Saratoga Lacrosse Shootout and the Stowe Lacrosse Festival. In the fall, the program will expand from one to three teams, and will add a second location, with teams training at Stillwater High School on Sundays and Queensbury High on Wednesdays. The fall teaching will continue to be a focused program where the kids get a lot of practices, as well as two days of tournaments.
“We are excited to be able to increase the number of teams and locations so we can draw from a greater pool of kids, and continue to see how God will grow the program. I am humbled to be able to be a part of FCA. To see it exist in the Adirondack Region is amazing, and it is a great call to provide this service for so many kids and their families and to help them grow,” Orr said.
Since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes has been challenging coaches and athletes on the professional, college, high school, junior high and youth levels to use the powerful medium of athletics to impact the world for Jesus Christ. FCA focuses on serving local communities by equipping, empowering and encouraging people to make a difference for Christ – to see the world impacted for Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes.
