90 Day Challenge
by posted 04/01/2014
 

At the end of my personal note I am going to put a challenge in front of you, which I pray you will accept.

Most of us know that our very good friend, Kevin Greene, has embarked on an incredible new challenge to transform the lives of coaches and athletes in our community and around the country.

He is now the Director of Coaches Ministry for The Fellowship of Christian Athletes, serving not only the lacrosse community, but the greater sports community in Northeastern Maryland, Northern Delaware and Southern Chester County, PA.
 
In this new role he will be providing emotional and spiritual support, coaches education and training and encouragement to coaches, who ultimately impact the lives of our children, schools and neighborhoods!  Kevin believes so heavily in the payoff of this endeavor that he left his job in the corporate world to pursue this.
 
The challenges in front of Kevin are enormous in task, but also enormous in their payoff to all of us!  With these challenges come the task of raising financial support.  Kevin's work with FCA is 100% self-funded, which means that all of his expenses to provide resources to coaches and athletes must come from the support of friends, family and the community who believe in him and his mission.
 
Kevin has a monthly goal of $9,000, in order to meet his operating budget (.90 of every dollar goes directly to his work).  I've already invested in Kevin's vision because I have seen first-hand what the impact is on my own family and in our local community!  I invite you to join me in support of Kevin right now!  
 
I am putting out a 90 Day Challenge (April 1 - June 30) to all of you to join this amazing venture and make a monthly contribution.  
 
To make your 100% tax deductible contribution (just like I did), click here http://fcalax.com/kevin or type this url into your web browser.  Once on this page, click on the "Support Kevin" link at the bottom of the page.  We need more "Kevins" in this world so please help me support him.  

This is truly an investment - An investment in our families and in our communities! I appreciate your time and encourage you to reach out to me with any questions.
 
Blessings to you and your families,
 
Coach Mario

First Annual FCA "One Way To Play" 5K
by posted 03/17/2014
 
Dear FCA Family & Friends,
 
I am proud to announce the details of the first annual FCA Delmarva Lacrosse “One Way To Play 5k”
 
FCA "One Way To Play 5K"
Date:  Thursday, June 19th
Time:  Registration: 5:30pm, Kiddie K: 6:20pm, 5K Start: 6:30 pm start (in lieu of practice)
Location: 
Glasgow Park in Bear, Delaware

Our goals for this event are to help increase 
FCA’s awareness in the community and to help raise funds to support our ministry.

We need your help!
1) We will need to raise approximately $3,000 to pay for the event coordination, event permits, t-shirt and awards.  This seems like a large sum, but if we are able to rely on our FCA families to work together to help collect support from area businesses and families, we can easily pay for the cost of the event. ("Many hands make for light work").  Additional funds raised will help support FCA Delmarva ministry investments, provide scholarships to deserving student-athletes and allow us to support other needs in the community. 
 
2) Please take a few minutes to read the attached letter (click here), and consider joining me to help organize some of the details of the event.

3) Pass along the printable race registration (click here) form, or the online registration link (click here) to anyone you know who would be interested in joining us for some family fun and exercise. Lacrosse sticks are always welcome!

As a coach, parent, and volunteer in the FCA ministry, I believe part of our mission is to spread the “good news” throughout our local community.  This event provides a great opportunity for us, the FCA family, to promote FCA, and FCA Delmarva Lacrosse, and to help spread our vision and increase our presence in the area.

Please to help support this wonderful event! 

Many Blessings!

Coach Tara

2014 Summer Tournament Schedule
by posted 02/04/2014
 
FCA Families, 

We are VERY excited to roll out the 2014 Summer Schedule!

We will be committing to the tournament organizers immediately, and barring any unforeseen circumstances, we will plan our practices in May and June accordingly.  

We will be completing our Summer season before the first of July as we have always set out to do, in order for our families to be able to spend the remainder of the Summer together as...well...families - and not be on the sidelines of a lacrosse field through the blazing heat of July and August.

Finally - we have heard you, and we have responded accordingly.  All teams for the 2014 Summer season will be playing four tournaments instead of three (and still finish by the end of June)!!

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me or Coach Tara.

Many Blessings!

Kevin

THE "BEST TEAM" MAY NOT BE WHAT IS BEST FOR OUR KIDS

THE "BEST TEAM" MAY NOT BE WHAT IS BEST FOR OUR KIDS

“And why do we fall, Bruce? So we can learn to pick ourselves up.” - Batman Begins

Don’t get me wrong here. I love all of the players, parents and families that I get to work with in sports. I would not want to be doing anything else with my life! But lately, I have been bewildered by a phenomena that seems to be growing in youth athletics. There is a constant search amongst parents and players to be on the “best team” that wins the most games and tournaments. It is no longer enough for our children to play on a local youth or high school team and enjoy the experience of playing sports. Furthermore, it is no longer even enough for our children to play on a good club travel team that plays well together, is competitive with other great teams from around the country and has top-notch coaching. Rather, there is a “grass is greener” mentality amongst parents and young athletes who are on the constant lookout for the absolute greatest team to be a part of.

There are a lot of factors driving all of this. It is partly due to the parent’s misconception that the better their child’s team, the better their chances for recruitment and success down the road...read more
