Lacrosse is Back!
The Montgomery Village Sports Association is excited to announce the return of Lacrosse to the Montgomery Village Community. Ashton Foster was a three-sport athlete at Northwest High School and played college lacrosse at Lock Haven University. Foster intends to lead the resurgence of what was at one time one of the most successful programs in the state of Maryland. Foster recently served as the as head JV and assistant varsity Lacrosse coach at Walter Johnson High School, after serving as the JV Head Coach at Northwest High School from 2017-2019. Foster brings a lot of knowledge as a coach and teacher and has been conducting Lacrosse camps in coordination with the Montgomery Village Foundation to build enthusiasm for the sport. He now intends to expand the program in the community.
Foster stated, “My goal is to first make connections with the youth in our community. To me, it is important to help support and guide young student athletes in whatever journey they decide to take. I enjoy encouraging them to try new things. Lacrosse has not generally been accessible to lower income homes and communities. My goal is to make lacrosse more inclusive for all, by bringing the sport to these communities. It is important for kids to have the opportunity to challenge themselves in new things, regardless of their background and skill set.”
Foster intends to create an environment where athletes have individualized attention. Instructors will address the needs of each athlete. Athletes ages 7 to 10 will learn the fundamentals of lacrosse through fun games to develop skills such as scooping, passing, catching, cradling, shooting and more. All skill levels are welcome!
If you and your young athlete are looking for excellent and fun training please email Ashton Foster at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for one of the camp.
