We are continuing to monitor COVID-19 and are actively following guidance from the Suffolk County Department of Health, NYS Department of Health, and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The Executive Board of Longwood Youth Sports Association (LYSA) have made the decision to suspend all current sports programs starting March 16, 2020 and tentatively resuming on May 1, 2020. This suspension applies to all activities including Games, Practices, Scrimmages, and Meetings, and related events. We will continue to monitor this very fluid situation, and plan on re-assessing our decision in April. This decision was made in consultation with the commissioners and representatives of all of our sports programs.
The health and well being of our LYSA youth athletes, their families, and our Longwood community is our highest priority.
