Fort Hunt Youth Athletic Association
Fort Hunt Youth Athletic Association (FHYAA) was established in 1959 to serve the youth of Fort Hunt and the surrounding communities. Our mission is to provide children up to 18 years of age the opportunity to experience recreational sports in an atmosphere that encourages and promotes teamwork, friendships and self-confidence, in a positive, safe and supportive environment. We strive to teach proper sports fundamentals, strategies and good sportsmanship, which empowers our young athletes to become responsible citizens.
FHYAA is a nonprofit organization driven by volunteer members who serve in various capacities. We recognize that without our volunteers we could not function. We are thankful for and proud of the extensive network of community members that volunteer their time and effort to serve as coaches for our teams, Commissioners and Board Members for individual sports, as well as Board Members for FHYAA.
FHYAA currently supports Softball, Baseball, Lacrosse, Basketball, Rugby, Volleyball, Football and Cheerleading.
The FHYAA Board of Directors is dedicated to improving our sports programs and expanding the opportunities we provide for the children in our community.
FHYAA Aligns Coaching Philosophy with the Positive Coaching Alliance
Positive Coaching Alliance provides tips and tools that youth and high school sports coaches, parents, athletes leaders and officials can immediately bring to practices and games. Our tools comprise insights from research-based sports and educational psychology, advice from PCA National Advisory Board Members, and gems of wisdom from PCA Trainers and the leaders, coaches, parents and athletes they meet in our workshops.
REMINDER: Applications Now Accepted for Jackson Casey Memorial Scholarships
The Board of Directors of the Fort Hunt Youth Athletic Association has announced a call for applications for the 2017 Jackson Casey Memorial Scholarships, named in honor of a Ft. Hunt athlete who passed away in 2011.
“Jackson would have been a senior this year,” said FHYAA President John Stamos. “This is the class of his peers. We expect to have a spike in the applications. “These scholarships help highlight the joy and fun that sports used to bring to Jackson’s life. His passion and enthusiasm lives on through the recipients of these scholarships.”
The $3,000 scholarships are awarded annual to two graduating seniors (1 male, 1 female) who at some point in their athletic careers participated on a Fort Hunt Youth Athletic Association team. Each applicant is asked to submit a 1,200 word essay describing the life lessons they’ve learned through participating in athletics.
