MANHASSET PAL 2015 INFORMATION

The Nassau County Police Activity League-Manhasset Unit will offer its Lacrosse Clinic Program and the Travel Lacrosse Team Program, commencing in March 2015.  These programs are generally available to boys and girls from the Manhasset community in grades kindergarten through eighth who reside in or attend school in the Manhasset. The Manhasset PAL Lacrosse and Manhasset Baseball/Softball Programs are coordinated to prevent scheduling conflicts. Since the Spring session is the only season for Manhasset PAL lacrosse, Travel Team members are required to give lacrosse priority in scheduling conflicts with off-season and second season sports (such as soccer) as well as any club lacrosse affiliation.
