Location for Saturday's Match

Tuesday, 2 June 2015

We will play Kings Park AWAY next Saturday at the Tiffany Fields (near the Nissequogue River State Park and the old Kings Park Psychiatric Center). The fields are off St Johnland Road. Please check the map ahead of time. Unfortunately, I don't have an address for your GPS. Here is the text provided by the Kings Park club which might assist you:

"Sagtikos Parkway North (Exit 41A Southern Parkway, 53 LIE, 45 Northern Parkway) to Sunken Meadow Parkway North to Exit SM4E (Pulaski Road / East Northport Road). Follow Pulaski Road across Rte 25A. Pulaski Road changes to Old Dock Road. Follow Old Dock Road past the Middle School and into the old KPPC grounds. Turn right at the light on St. Johnland Road and follow around the curve and up the hill. The fields will be on the right side before the top of the hill. Please enter the park gates and park along the dirt road that circles the park. The town now issues tickets for parking on St. Johnland Road. Additional Parking is now available on the Boulevard at the top of the hill."

If you need more help, you could look at the field map on our team web site. There is a push-pin in that map marking the Tiffany Fields.

The kick-off is at noon, so let's arrive at 11:20 for warm-up and check-in. Wear the GOLD jerseys.

Weather permitting, we will keep to our regular practice schedule this week. Tuesday, JAE 5:30pm to 7. And on Friday (for the next two weeks), during our regular training session are the tryouts for Fall. The ETA trainer will be leading the session and providing recommendations about the roster.

In an effort to celebrate this special award we are inviting the players and families to meet at Bertucci's Pizzeria located at 881 Walt Whitman Road in Melville after the awards presentation. We are asking for $5 per person which will cover 2 slices of regular pizza and soda. Of course, if you prefer to order lunch on your own that is fine too.

The club has assigned our team training slot. We will train from 6pm to 7pm at FJC each Friday. We won't start training until the fields are playable. Also, LIJSL has delayed the start of the season by one week because of the snow that still on the ground. I'll keep you updated about any schedule updates.

I've requested that the club assign us a Friday training session with the ETA trainer at FJC. Weekly team practices will be on Thursdays at JAE (starting at 6 pm). I'll confirm this once I hear from the club about field availability.

Futsal: The futsal squad will play a make-up match on Sunday morning the 8th of March at Centereach HS.

If you are not familiar with futsal, please familiarize yourself with the rules. You can find all the necessary information on the Long Island Futsal web site.

What you will need:

If you have a futsal ball, you may bring that. Don’t bring a regular soccer ball since the league wants to encourage players to use a proper futsal ball (smaller and heavier than a regular soccer ball).
