Our History

The FCA Lacrosse Ministry is for any athlete, coach, fan or friend of the FCA Lacrosse community who loves lacrosse and who has an openness or desire to grow in his/her relationship with God. FCA is committed to developing “three dimensional” athletes and coaches who want to fulfill their potential physically, mentally and spiritually.

The Fellowship of Christian Athletes Lacrosse Ministry was officially established in the summer of 1989 with a lacrosse camp at Gettysburg College in Gettysburg, PA. The first FCA Lacrosse Team competed in the Vail Lacrosse Shoot Out in July 1992. Now after two decades of impacting thousands of lives across the U.S…. FCA Lacrosse is in Chicago.

Just a few months ago we began a conversation about starting a youth lacrosse club here in the western suburbs of Chicago. It was clear to us from the start that the Lord had put this idea on our hearts. Deciding to take the next step, we prayed that the Lord would be in the center of it all, and if He wanted us to move forward He would provide the players, families, coaches and support.

FCA Lacrosse – Chicago West was started and within a month we were blessed with two full teams for our first season. Throughout the year we ran FCA Summer Speedlax, a Lacrosse Camp @WA, Fall Specialty Clinics and Winter Skills Clinics. Through the first year over 90 individual players have participated in FCA Lacrosse – Chicago West.
