It’s been an impressive season for the POBJFK HS Wrestling Team.
Eight wrestlers, including eighth-grader Peter Pappas, were named All-Conference, while two were named All County: Pappas and Dylan Schmidt. Both Pappas and Schmidt came in third (in their respective weight classes) in the county at the Nassau County Tournament, held at Hofstra University on Tuesday, Feb. 12.
Clinics designed to help children learn the basics of soccer are planned for this spring at both Cantiague Park and Cedar Creek Park. In addition to learning the rules of the game, children will also learn about teamwork and good sportsmanship. All clinics will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. on their respective days.
Kids of all ages are welcome to come play hockey at Cantiague Park in Hicksville, and this winter is no exception. Both shape-up sessions for those who want to get in shape for hockey season and tryout dates have been announced. The schedule, broken down by age group, is as follows:
Fees vary by class. Payment is due by 5 p.m., Feb. 17. Last chance registration begins at 8 a.m., Feb. 22 for any remaining spots, and the first day of classes is Monday, Feb. 25. For a detailed listing of class offerings and more registration information, call the center at 572-0501 or visit the Nassau County Parks website at www.nassaucountyny.gov/parks.
Call it a coincidence, but the timing for Chris and Peter Ferraro’s announcement of the creation of a new hockey and recreation facility couldn’t be any better.
Two days before the National Hockey League was set to drop the puck for a shortened, 48-game season beginning on Jan. 19, the Ferraro twins – former NHL players and Olympians themselves – broke ground on their $15 million, privately financed Twin Rinks Ice Center at Eisenhower Park.
“It is our passion to support Long Island families so that they will no longer have to be torn apart or have their family life disrupted just because a child excels in hockey and wants to try to make it to the NHL,” said Chris Ferraro. “This facility will enable us to create a hockey hot bed right here on Long Island.”
While each family celebrates the new year in their own way, skating enthusiasts and members of United States Figure Skating (USFS) have their own tradition: kicking off the year with a National Skating Month event at their local rink.
Throughout January, skating clubs across the country celebrate the sport by hosting a myriad of skating-themed activities to create a fun-filled afternoon, or in this case, morning. On Sunday, January 13th, Great Neck Figure Skating Club (GNFSC) kept over 120 skaters and their families entertained during two hours of festivities.
A West Hills Day camper, 9-year-old Lauren Brandenstein, was selected by the camp’s senior leadership to attend a swim clinic featuring instruction by Michael Phelps, the winner of a record-setting eight gold medals in the 2008 Summer Olympics. Mr. Phelps has accumulated a total of 14 Olympic gold medals in his career.
