Also special thanks to Lisa Beth Klein , for stepping up as team Mom.  Thanks to some of the dads who jumped in from time to time.

BIG THANK YOU TO ... the team, the boys, the lads..... it was a pleasure coaching you all , I hope to see you all playing for the club next year....

EXTRA HUGE THANKS.... to the coaches!!!    Will Galway,  Ant Hearne , Marco Fernandez* , gentlemen thank you for all of your dedication and knowledge...

U-14 TACKLE: LAST PRACTICE & GAME
Posted: 5/18/2017 10:31:40 AM
Practice:  Tonight at 6:30pm at Rahway River Park (end of season party following practice)

Game:  Sunday, May 21st at Rockaway (NY) kickoff at 12pm be there at 11am.

Location:  169 State Road Breezy Point, NY (Fort Tilden)

Directions:  Take the Staten Island Expressway over the Varrazano Bridge.  Stay in left lane on the bridge and take to the Belt Parkway toward JFK airport.  Follow Belt Parkway to Exit 11S (Flatbush Ave S toward the Rockaways).  Go over the Marine Park Bridge and turn right toward Fort Tilden/Breezy Point.  You are now on Rockaway Point Blvd/State Rd.  Make 1st left into Fort Tilden and follow that road until the end.  Turn right and the parking lot is located on the left.

This match is a great day to enjoy with the whole family as Rockaway always provides us with food, sun and fun.  In years past, most boys like to run in the ocean after the match, so remember to bring a towel!  Please also remember that there are no lifeguards on duty, so if you choose to go in the ocean, you must be with an adult and have their approval.

See you tonight.

Coach Owain
