Shoreham, NY - July 25, 2016 - Teamwork, good sportsmanship, and discipline: three great qualities that can be taught to our children through local athletic teams. The Long Island Sound Sharks PAL Youth Football League has been teaching these values across Brookhaven’s north shore since 1996. Their mission is to educate each child on the proper fundamental skills that are necessary to play the game of football, and to have their coaches serve as positive roles models for all athletes. The Sharks understand that sports have the power to promote physical, mental, moral, social and emotional well-being, as well has teach our children leadership, self-confidence, and character.
On Thursday, July 28th at 7:00pm the Long Island Sharks Football program, in conjunction with the Riverhead PAL, will host their first Safety Seminar at Defense Hill Park (Defense Hill Road, Shoreham). The seminar is open to the public and free of charge. The goal of the seminar is to address any questions or concerns regarding tackle football and to educate parents about “Heads Up” football and concussion prevention. The seminar will include special guest speakers and raffle prizes!
“As a mother of three, I understand that child safety is a top priority for families,” said Legislator Anker. “Sports are vital to our children’s quality of life and the more we can educate ourselves about safety, on and off the field, the better we can protect our children.”
