Winter Program

Lasting Legacy’s Winter Indoor Program runs on Thursdays and Saturdays 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 Thursdays, 4pm to 6pm

U14 Players Thursdays, 6pm to 8pm

U16/U19 Players Saturdays, 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 11 players.  Club participation in NIT for the U14 is scheduled for February 18-20 or February 19-21 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 (NITQ tournament site) and Lasting Legacy U19 team NITQ assignment NITQ tournament site) will be determined by USA Field Hockey.   

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

U16 – March 4 – 6 at the Spooky Nook, in Lancaster, PA.

U19 – February 25 – 27 at the Convention Center in Richmond, VA.
