The 2012 spring intramural baseball/softball seasons are just around the corner. Jericho Athletic Association (JAA) Registration is now open and will close on Jan. 29, 2012. A $50 late fee will be applied to registrations after Jan. 29; roster availability is not guaranteed for registrations after this date.

The core of the now-fourth-grade-boys Syosset Lacrosse Team has been participating in lacrosse together for the last four years. Playing together since the K-2 Sylax (Syosset Youth Lacrosse) clinic, they have formed a special bond that has proven successful, posting a 7-1-1 overall record this past spring season.
The same group participated in the first ever Nassau County Summer Youth Lacrosse League held at Cantiague Park in Hicksville. Syosset were the undefeated Third/Fourth Grade Division Champs. Teams from Farmingdale, Bethpage and Seaford also competed.
Registration for SYAC Girls’ Softball’s 2012 spring season now can be made online. Hundreds of girls from Syosset, Woodbury and Jericho, in grades kindergarten through 9, play SYAC softball each spring.
To register and pay online, go to www.syacgs.org and select the appropriate league for your age group. Players who played in SYAC this past season and still have a registration number and password, can use it to register. If you are new to SYAC, follow the link to register for the first time.
In addition to registration, all players (except the youngest, K-1) must attend an evaluation for balanced team selection. All girls who register are placed on teams.

On Monday, Nov. 7, the Jericho Athletic Association celebrated the close of another successful baseball/softball program, with the JAA’s Annual Baseball Dinner held at the Ritz Club in Syosset.
This year, approximately 300 boys and 130 girls participated in these baseball/softball programs. Both boys and girls enjoyed free clinics offered by the JAA using professional organizations, a full slate of games and, once again, both baseball and softball players enjoyed games at home, as well as against neighboring towns. The away games provided the boys and girls in the program an intramural experience with a travel feel. The 9-and 10-year-old and 11/12 year-old boys’ teams met Syosset Baseball in the Third Annual Turnpike Challenge over Memorial Day weekend, and the children who participated were left with memories that will last a lifetime.
The KappaSigma fraternity of Adelphi University hosted the Nassau County PAL Special Needs Unit’s Flag Football team for a game on Monday night, November 28. It was the last game of the fall season for the PAL team.
The weather was crisp and clear, the lights were bright and the turf was perfect. With their offence and defense playing for keeps, the 18 athletes held their own against a very fast fraternity team. The game was a seesaw battle and was tied at 19-all when, with only 56 seconds left, a long run off a handoff put the PAL team up by 6.
The Fourth Annual Grillo and Associates Blazing Trails 4 Autism 4 Mile Run had everything a runner could want from a road race – a challenging but fair course that took runners and walkers through a picturesque Lake Success neighborhood before entering the Great Neck South High School campus and taking the campus pathways to the exciting finish on the high school track, high quality “hoodies” for every entrant, an incredible array of past-race refreshments, quick and accurate results courtesy of JMS Racing Services, and a generous raffle highlighted by a Cannondale II bicycle courtesy of Brickwell Cycling and Multisports.
