There will be no Basketball the week of February 20 because the schools will be closed for Winter Recess that week.
A couple of reminders from Central Nassau Basketball:
1. Please see the Basketball picture schedule on the Central Nassau website by team. Pictures will be taken Wednesday February 8 and Thursday February 9 at the Bowling Green East APR. Please bring all players down for pictures, as we provide coaches plaques with the team pictures, and we want all the players in the team pictures. Pictures will be handed out with this week.
2.Please refrain from parking on the inside of the circle at Bowling Green. We have had numerous conversations with the East Meadow School District and they are very concerned about safety in the circle, as is Central Nassau.
3.Please keep all food and drink out of all gymnasiums.
4.When bringing siblings to games, please keep them in the gyms, as we don’t want them roaming the schhol hallways.
Hello Central Nassau Parents!
**Please Read Through**
We are Happy to announce we have finalized most of the details for the clinics we are offering to the boys and girls this year.
March 4th, March 11th and March 18th at Be1st Fitness and Cages
Training by LI Elite, one of the premier organizations on LI.
Clinic Fees Included in Registration Fee
Clinics for all ages and skill levels
Extra Preseason Clinics run by Clarke Head Coach Tom Abruscato to be added before Opening Day
We are partnering with Back to Back Long Island Champion Clarke Coach Rachel Barry and her staff to offer clinics for our girls. **See Below**
March 4th, 11th, 18th,and 25th at the Clarke Gymnasium or outdoor softball field
Grades 1-5 from 2-3:30 PM and Grades 6-8 from 3:30-5PM
With the help of the Clarke program we are able to offer the clinics for $60, a 40% discount off the original $100 price. There is also a 20% discount for each sibling.
We are working on getting the instruction videotaped and providing a link to the kids and parents to access the video
CLICK BELOW FOR THE CLARKE CLINIC FORM: NOTE THE COST DISCOUNTS PER REGISTERED CHILD. $60 for first child $40 each additional
There will be two clinics on Friday evenings in March at Bowling Green. Dates to be announced as soon as we confirm gym availability.
We are excited to be able to offer these opportunities to our Central Nassau Boys and Girls. In order to participate, you need to register for Central Nassau by February 26th, after that we cannot guarantee you a spot in any of the clinics. Please register promptly so we can plan accordingly and provide the best possible experience for your children. Attached you will find the registration form for the Girls Softball Clinics. If you have any questions please contact CN or Coach Rachel Barry at RBARRY@EMUFSD.US. For more information about LI Elite and other exciting things going on this preseason visit us at www.centralnassauaa.com or join our Facebook page Central Nassau Little League Baseball.
The Central Nassau Board
**Originally we had stated that the clinics were included with registration. After Coach Barry announced that the Clarke clinics would be on the same dates as our clinics we got together and worked out a 25% discount for CN girls to bring the price down to $75 and then we agreed CN would subsidize the cost, bringing the price down to $60 ($20 off for each additional sibling), with the $15 that we raised the price of the Spring Season which was to include clinics. Although, in the end it is an extra $60 we believe that the training, over 4 sessions, the girls will get with Coach Barry and her players and staff will be as good or better than anything we would have provided and we didn’t want to conflict with the Coach Barry’s clinics as we thought this would be a disadvantage to our CN girls. They are also working on videotaping the instruction so you will get a link to hitting and pitching instruction that you can go back to any time with your daughter, we believe that is very valuable.
IMPORTANT PLEASE READ:
In the past week, the Central Nassau Board has had numerous conversations with the East Meadow School District and they have asked all those participating in Central Nassau Basketball adhere to the following rules:
1. There is no food and drink permitted in any of the gym. We have the Hallway monitors to walk around the gyms and ask those with food or drinks in the gyms to please take them out to the Lobby.
2.Parking at Bowling Green remains a problem. There is no parking on the school side of the circle or on the grass. We realize that some people will have to park on Stewart Avenue, but particularly with snow and ice, and being dark, we are deeply concerned about a child slipping between cars illegally parked and not being seen by someone driving in the circle. We suggest parents drop their children at the door of the appropriate gym and then try to find a parking space, parking on Stewart Avenue, if necessary.
3.Please keep the siblings attending the games inside the gym watching the games. We have had complaints of children walking in hallways of the school where they should not be. If a child needs to use the Rest Room, we ask that a parent accompany them.
Please be aware that the East Meadow provides Central Nassau the facilities at no cost and we ask that all please follow these simple rules.
Hello Central Nassau Parents!
We are very excited about the upcoming Spring Baseball and Softball season! We have been working hard to put together different programs to provide training for the boys and girls and we are proud to announce that we will be working with Long Island Elite for all of our in house training. Led by former college and professional baseball players and coaches, Rob Savarese and Greg Thompson, Long Island Elite is one of the premier organizations on Long Island and has some of the best trainers you will find. They will teach our boys, girls and coaches the proper fundamentals of the game. You can see their bios on our website www.centralnassauaa.com.
We will be using the brand new turf and cages at Be1st Fitness right here in Westbury for our training. Steve Morici, owner of Be1st, has been extremely accommodating working with the league to make sure we are going to have enough time in the cages and on the turf IF at a very reasonable cost. We will also be using the school gyms on a limited basis.
We are opening registration and you will notice that the fees for little league have gone up by $15 per child. Unfortunately all of these new and exciting things come at a cost. We have heard the cries for more training and teaching in our program and we have done the best we can to put it together at a minimal cost. Instead of charging people to come to the clinics we are putting it into the cost of the league, as almost all other leagues do.
We are bringing in qualified baseball and softball people and they are agreeing to work with us on the costs so we hope that you understand that you are going to get tremendous value for your $15.
Your son and daughter will get at least two pre-season clinics run by Long Island Elite. The 90 minute clinics will be held on Saturday Evenings in late February and March at Be1st Fitness. We are going to limit sessions to approximately 36 children per session. We will announce the exact dates and times your child is scheduled when we get a better idea of how many kids we have so we can split the groups up appropriately and safely.
We are going to have a clinic for the coaches so that we can make sure our volunteers have the tools to teach the kids the fundamentals of the game. We are also going to get a discounted group rate if anyone is interested in private lessons, which we know there are a lot of you based on the feedback we have gotten, more on that to follow.
Please register as early as possible so the clinics can be finalized and everyone will have enough notice as to when their session is. It also makes it easier for us to plan, order uniforms, make teams and get mangers in a timely fashion. We can avoid a lot of the issues we have had in the past if we can get everyone registered well before the season starts.
Thanks in advance! If you have any questions please reach out to us and we will be more than happy to help. We will be sending out information on the travel program as well as how you can volunteer to help the league shortly.
