Sharing the Creator's Game with Our Neighbors while Helping Families of Color Navigate a More Direct Path to College Graduation

We are a non-profit organization in Northwest Houston. We were formed in August of 2019, when parents of youngsters from Frank Black Middle School and Roberson Middle School wanted an affordable opportunity for their sons and daughters to continue their experience with the Creator's Game. They had just returned from Bridge Lacrosse's Summer Academy and these parents recognized and voiced a need for a venue through which their student athletes could play the fastest game on two feet outside of school and after graduation, as well as opportunities for their younger children to learn and play. That need dovetailed well with the late Coach Mike Mohnkern's dream of boys and girls Lacrosse at Drew Academy and with Coach Woody's efforts toward that end. Our Coach Woody had been taking youngsters from our three Host Middle Schools to camps and arranging for them to play on local rec league teams. One went on to play College Lacrosse at Virginia Wesleyan College. So AHL was born that summer.

Our goal is to introduce lacrosse to girls and boys in our area and to field teams of 4th, 5th, and 6th Graders coached by law enforcement officers; while supporting our families in our host middle schools, the aforementioned Drew Academy and Black and Roberson Middle Schools and those who have moved on to various high schools.
