Last Chance: Become a LI Lizard Ball Boy

Tryouts are taking place on April 21 in East Meadow.

Some of the Long Island Lizards Professional Outdoor Lacrosse Team’s game day staff will be holding official open tryouts for candidates as regular game ball boys on April 21 from 10 a.m. to noon in the parking lot of .

Registration begins at 9 a.m. Meet in the picnic area near baseball field #1. The tryout is free. Boys from East Meadow and all over Long Island wishing to be considered for the position as a regular volunteer ball boy should show up accompanied with an adult in order to be considered for the position.

Tryouts will consist of some important skill drills as well as other tasks. Being a regular ball boy is hard work. Boys that eventually get chosen get to spend  some serious time with the Lizards' players, coaches and staff. You must be able to make Lizard home practices on Thursday nights as well as most, if not all, of their home games at James M. Shuart Stadium at Hofstra University (4/28, 6/1, 6/23, 7/7, 7/14,7/21 and 7/28).

Don't forget to bring your equipment! For more information email Camman888@aol.com.

This could be a great opportunity for the right boy. Many of the Lizards and other NY Pro lacrosse team ballboys have come from East Meadow over the years. These boys gone on to excell in sports and have developed a great work ethic and have gotten other fantastic opportunities that they would not have had, if they never got this particular chance.
