Winter Program

Lasting Legacy’s Winter Indoor Program runs on Mondays and Wednesdays from December through March, and culminates with the USAFH National Indoor Tournament (NIT). Our local training facility, SkateSafe America, is located on Bethpage-Sweet Hollow Road –  south of the Long Island Expressway between Round Swamp Road and Route 110 in Bethpage, New York.

U10/U12 Players Mondays, 4pm to 6pm

U14 Players Mondays, 6pm to 8pm

U16/U19 Players Wednesdays, 5pm to 8pm

Players have the option to train only or may opt to train and compete in travel tournaments that occur principally in New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania. Only tournament players are eligible for selection to our National Indoor Tournament (NIT) teams.  Selection to a NIT team is competitive since Lasting Legacy sends only one team in each age division and each team has a maximum of 10 players.  Club participation in NIT for the U14 is scheduled for February 14-17 at Olympic Training Center in Lancaster, PA called the Spooky Nook.  Club participation in NITs for our U16 and U19 teams requires a qualification tournament called the National Indoor Tournament Qualifiers (NITQs).  Lasting Legacy U16 team NITQ assignment is set for The Training Center, Pottstown, PA on January 19,  Our U19 team NITQ assignment is set for Heritage Hills, PA on December 15.  

Qualified U16 and U19 teams will compete in NITs as follows:

U16 – February 28 – March 1 at the Spooky Nook, in Lancaster, PA.

U19 – February 21 – 23 at the Convention Center in Richmond, VA.  

Please note that players often move up an age group for the Winter Program.  The age group that a player participates in is determined by her age as of Jan 1, 2020.  

So for the 2019/2020 Winter Program the age groups are as follows :

  • U10 = YOB 2010 or later
  • U12 = YOB 2008 & 2009,
  • U14 = YOB 2006 & 2007,
  • U16 = YOB 2004 & 2005,
  • U19 = YOB 2002 & 2003.
