Nine Nassau County Police Activity League (NCPAL) units, serving the communities ofBethpage, East Meadow, Farmingdale, Manhasset, Massapequa Park, Massapequa, Franklin Square, Elmont, Great Neck, Mineola, Plainview, Roosevelt and special needs unit, kicked off their youth football and flag football seasons recently.
A special noontime ceremony on opening day in Farmingdale included recognition of the NCPAL unit’s accomplishments, the youth players and volunteers. A total of 60 flag football games were played over the course of the day with over 1,200 youths participating in both girls and boys combined (grades K,1,2) and boys and girls separate (grades 3,4,5,6) games played on six fields at School District No. 22 Woodward Parkway School (back field), at 95 Woodward Parkway in Farmingdale; in the evening the eighth grade and high school boys played their games at Town of Oyster Bay Allen Park. Many of the PAL communities also began their cheerleading season recently as well.
“In Farmingdale PAL there is a lot of enthusiasm about the start of our flag football season that ends in November when we hold a jamboree-like ‘Super Bowl Sunday.’ Since 2004 this program has grown to include 1,176 girls and boys and 350 volunteers. Many of the volunteers have been involved for years and continue to be a great asset to its success. We welcome the newcomers who have volunteered to coach and help with other aspects of the program. We strive to provide an educational experience for our youth with emphasis on sportsmanship and the benefits of being involved in athletic activities,” said Founder and Commissioner of the Farmingdale NCPAL Flag Football Program Ray Webb.
“We’re off to another great year with the 2014 flag football season as it’s not just flag and not just the Farmingdale location. This is another great opportunity for young people to get out and enjoy athletics through PAL programs and this was all made possible through the hard work and dedication of our volunteers,” said Nassau County PAL President Frank DiVittorio.
