In a community partnership that benefited youth athletes, Falcon Pride Athletic Booster Club and Locust Valley High School joined together to hold Future Falcon Day on April 27 and 28 at the high school.
Varsity athletes and their coaches volunteered their time to host clinics for approximately 60 youth athletes in the district’s feeder programs for lacrosse, baseball and track. The aspiring Falcons received individualized coaching from the high school players who taught them skills, held drills and offered words of encouragement.
Following the events of each day, the athletes from all age groups joined together to share pizza and snacks and discuss the fun they had.
“Future Falcon Day fostered a sense of pride and school spirit within our athletic community,” said Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics Dr. Danielle Turner. “The partnership we have with Falcon Pride and the youth athletic organizations provides incredible opportunities for our student-athletes of all ages.” Dr. Turner expressed sincere gratitude to Falcon Pride for sponsoring Future Falcon Day and for the continued support the booster club offers to the district.
