The teenagers at Charles Water Karate & Fitness, located at 122 Hillside Avenue in Williston Park, meet at the school every two weeks to organize events; their main goal is to contribute. The teens have a great time and while they are having fun they are also planning on ways to contribute either by either raising money and/or by doing random acts of kindness.
There are no parents allowed; however, they is always an adult, and a certified instructor at Charles Water Karate & Fitness. Charles Water and Karate & Fitness has wonderfully motivated the dedicated teenagers. The Teen Club consists of 12- to 18-year-olds who train at the studio.
We are so proud for our teenagers for their sense of community and contribution. Whoever said that teenagers in America are uncommitted have not met the teenagers at Charles Water Karate & Fitness.

The NHPAA 14U Team Intensity were crowned champions of the 2010 HBQVB “Never Give Up” Fall Travel Tournament winning 3 consecutive hard fought games against the Brooklyn Cyclones, Middle Village Explosion, and the Cyclones Silver. The girls were relentless in their pursuit of the grand prize and stood the test, displaying fierce determination against these elite teams comprised of All-Stars from many different towns.
In the first game, New Hyde Park squared off against the Brooklyn Cyclones who had a dominant pitcher who has been clocked at 57mph and is considered by some to be among the top pitchers in the PSAL Brooklyn/Queens High School League. NHP was led by right fielder Kim Spagnuolo who had 6 hits in 10 at bats on the day along with 5RBI and also made several eye popping defensive plays. Spagnuolo was 2-4, 2RBI, 2R, and 2SB against the Cyclones playing her best when it mattered most. Jillian Sakowich (2-4) set the table from the leadoff spot scoring twice and had the game winning hit to right on a clutch two out – two strike single to score Kayla Buff. Kristen Hickey was the winning pitcher throwing an impressive 5 1/3 innings allowing 4 hits while striking out 6. Hickey also went 2-3 with a towering triple to left for 2 RBI in the first inning and later had a sacrifice bunt to 1B in which she alertly stopped and backpedalled towards home before being tagged out which allowed Geena Fornataro to score from third.
The New Hyde Park Girls 12U softball team won the Franklin Square Pistillo Fall Classic Championship with a sensationally played 3-2 win over a strong Floral Park team.

NHPLL beat Roslyn, Garden City South and Hicksville before beating Floral Park in the championship game.
This NHP team had some 2010 year. They won the Bellmore Memorial Day Tournament, NJBL league championship, District 29 Championship, Section 5 Championship, New York State Championship and the Eastern Region Championship all in the 10U divisions before playing up this fall and capping a tremendous season with the fall championship. In all the team went 43-2 in 2010.
Merillon Athletic Association will be making some changes to our Boys Spring Intramural Division alignment for next season. These changes will only affect the Upper Farms, Lower Farms and Instructional Divisions. All other Divisions will remain the same including our Summer and Fall Travel Programs.
After careful consideration of the likely impact of these changes, we have concluded that they will create a stronger development path for your children both on and off the baseball field. Similar to when your child attends school wherein the curriculum changes each year they move up in grade level, we are taking the same approach from a baseball perspective.
