Teams from Freeport, Hempstead, Locust Valley, Long Beach, Lynbrook, Massapequa, Plainview-Old Bethpage and West Hempstead will compete when games begin this spring.
The student-athletes toured the facility and enjoyed panel discussions with members of the Jets’ Women’s Organization, who will also be mentoring some of the girls. Each student-athlete received a uniform and gear, presented to them in personalized locker room stalls.
