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.
Please join us for a FREE 30 minute parent seminar

For each coach that volunteers, we can open the registration up to 10-12 more players! Please Consider volunteering.
Practices for Spring will begin early to mid-March and run through mid/late May.
Teams will practice 1 time per week for 90 minutes and games will be played in a 1 hour time block on Sunday afternoons. The practice day and time are determined by your coach and gym availability. Generally elementary teams will have practice from 6:00-7:30 PM and middle school teams will practice from 7:30 to 9:00PM. A schedule of games will be distributed once the teams are formed and referees are scheduled (hopefully the 1st week of March).
** the number of practices, times and duration are determined by Fairfax County. Currently FFC will allow one 90 minute practice and one 60 minute game per week per team.
