Island Garden, JMF and Lightning Operations Closed INDEFINITELY

Up to this point, we have been basically going week to week with our decision when we can reopen. We now believe that is not realistic and somewhat misleading. We now are saying that we will close indefinitely until such time that the CDC, New York State and Nassau County officials tell us it is safe to open. Once we receive that information, we will again completely sanitize the facility again (we have purchased new equipment based on professional recommendations) and only then will open the doors.

Please understand that we are in no way giving up on the Spring Season. It will be abbreviated and probably extended into late June. We strongly believe that sports play a very important part in the lives of children and adults. A way will be found to get back on track but only after it is safe to do so.

Be assured that our staff is working from home every day to do whatever it can. We are on telephone conferences with youth sports leaders from around the country exchanging information and ideas. Unfortunately, there is not much we can do but just communicate and stay ready.

In the meantime, we want you to know that we are thinking about and praying for all of our players, coaches, parents, program administrators and referees. Please stay safe and inside so that we can come back stronger than ever.

Jim, Karen, Tom, Rosemary, Debbie and Dwayne
