Fort Hunt Youth Athletic Association
Dear FHYAA Family,
It is with a heavy heart I have to share the sad news of the passing of our President, Bob Burton. Bob passed away on Sunday, May 4, 2014. Bob faithfully served the FHYAA and community for over 20 years. Bob left a legacy of hard work and dedication. His contributions will be missed by all.
The Memorial Service is scheduled for Friday, May 9, 2014 at the Aldersgate United Methodist Church, Alexandria, VA at 10:00am with a reception to follow the service.
The FHYAA is a strong family oriented organization that has served the community for over 50 years. This organization is a history of coming together in good times as well as bad times. We will get through this together.
Derrick A. Spearman Vice President FHYAA
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.
