Tryouts being held for girls softball

2013-14 10U-18U season

Established in 2010, the Long Island Thunderbolts was founded by Coaches Carmine Mazzaro and Peter Janowsky. What started out as one team the first year has now grown to five, as they look to expand on that. The club’s mission is to teach its players the game of softball one pitch at a time. This is accomplished through discipline, respect for each other, trustworthiness and poise as each player pushes and encourages one another to strive for greatness on and off the field.  

“Some girls want to play and some are college driven” said 18U Head Coach Janowsky. “We take pride in teaching respect, education and integrity.” The major attribute of this organization is helping the girls develop as players and getting them ready to pursue an opportunity to play softball in college. Players are also assisted with the recruitment process.

Isles draft 15th and make

defensemen Ryan Pulock first pick

Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum was buzzing with excitement at the 13th Annual Draft Party. With the New York Islanders qualifying for the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time since the 2006-07 season, expectations for building off this past season’s success are running high. Given the fact that the team is slated to move to Brooklyn’s Barclays Center for the 2015-16 season, the window is closing fast for the Isles to make a run while still playing in the team’s original barn.

As in past years, the draft party offered plenty to check out whether it was fun and games for children such as NHL Super Deker, where they can show off their puck handling skills or NHL Shut Out, where kids could practice blocking shots as a goalie in a virtual reality world. There were also carnival related rides and bounce houses. Adult attendees were treated to a tour of the team’s locker room in addition to several hockey memorabilia displays catering to old and new generations of hockey fanatics.
