We are a non-profit youth development organization in Northwest Houston. Our goal is to introduce lacrosse to girls and boys in Elementary and Middle Schools in our area by holding clinics and by sponsoring youngsters to local clinics and camps, and eventually to field teams of 4th, 5th, and 6th graders. AHL is committed to recruiting and training law enforcement officers who volunteer to coach; while we continue to support our student athletes and 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.
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 teams 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 clinics arranging for them to play on local rec league teams since 2011. One of our early campers from Drew Academy went on to play college lacrosse at Virginia Wesleyan College.
We are a non-profit youth development organization in Northwest Houston. Our goal is to introduce lacrosse to girls and boys in our area, and to assist those youngsters and their families in their academic, and their athletic pursuits, and to help guide them along a college preparatory tract.
