Port Washington Youth Activities (PYA) is pleased to announce that their 2018 spring sports season registration is underway.
This spring PYA is once again offering a full slate of sports for all boys and girls ages Kindergarten through seventh grade. These include baseball, softball, tennis, developmental lacrosse, and roller hockey. The PYA baseball, softball, and lacrosse fields located at the Lions Field complex at the end of Glen Lane in Port Washington feature one of the finest natural grass outdoor playing facilities in Nassau County. The roller hockey program takes place at the Manorhaven Park Roller Hockey rink. PYA Tennis is run indoors at the Port Washington Tennis Academy on Harbor Road.
PYA operates the only Little League sanctioned baseball and softball programs in town. Its softball program for second through seventh grades will participate in a local league by age group with games played at Lions Field and surrounding towns. PYA proudly abides by Little League policies including background checks for its volunteers and coaches. The organization also has a Little League-approved safety plan in place for its facilities as PYA feels that parents should accept only the best and safest program for their children. Also, all players participating in the spring program are eligible to compete for the summer travel teams.
Further information, applications, and online registration with credit card payment can be found at www.pyasports.org under the “Register For Programs” heading. Application forms are also available at Arena Sports Center, 52 Main Street. For additional information, call PYA at 516-944-7921. Please be aware that registrations for certain sports are subject to deadlines and roster limits, so the organization recommends that parents should sign up your child for their spring sport(s) as soon as possible to avoid being closed out.
