Round up

Still rebuilding! Last year was a difficult year with many surprises. In many ways you could say it was a Cinderella Season. For health reasons, I took the Asst Coach position again, feeling that I couldn't spot the potentially heavy skills at HB Rings, or Vault where it's required. Anthony Petrocelli, my former assistant coach (2002-2009)was head coach. In November, I don't think we were confident of a .500 record. We opened with a decisive win over Tottenville, then squeezed out a victory over Stuyvesant by 0.2. From there, it was as though they caught fire and had a spectacular run, winning all of their meets and finishing at 6-0. In the team championship, one of the closest ever, they were able to win over JFK by a slim margin of 119-118. When the dust had settled after event finals,our two captains, had won the individual City Championships in the All Around, Rings, Parallel Bars and High Bar, as well as making All-City, We hit at just the right time, team and Individual Finals, to score 119.1 in the Team Champs, to win our 13th Team Title and earn 4 individual event titles. It was an exciting year!

You can help!

Even a $10.00 donation to our
Grip (and Equipment) Fund will help!
You know how necessary grips are!

If you were in gymnastics or had a friend
in gymnastics, then you know how expensive grips are,
along with everything else, and how often you need new grips. If every alumni of the team made a small contribution to our Grip Fund, we could ensure all boys had the necesary safety gear all the time. This is your way of saying "Thank You" to the program that helped you to be who you are today. Donate now - help us ensure our team has proper grips and other necessary learing equipment to keep us successful. Enable us to continue buying such things as soft mats that prevent injuries during the learning process.

Why athletics? Why Long Island City High School?

Long Island City High School in Queens, NY is a member of the New York City Public Schools Athletic League and competes in almost every sport the PSAL maintains. You can follow our PSAL teams here. You can see more of our activities at Department of Education's schoolwires site.

We are the communities we come from. We have many first generation students just beginning to learn English. We are a Title I school, with family incomes low enough that better than 65% of our students will qualify for free lunch under the federal guidelines. We accept those who wish to come here, some of whom have significant learning issues. In short, we are the PUBLIC's School. We take those who come here, and we don't say no. We provide access and opportunity.

Along with a fine academic program, Long Island City offers a chance to compete for over 30 teams, one of the largest, most diversified programs in New York City. From football to gymnastics, from wrestling to fencing, from cricket to basketball, from volleyball to golf, from tennis to swimming and everything in between, students at LIC have the opportunity to participate in many different sports. We are above the city-wide average in the number of advanced placement classes our students take. We encourage every student capable of success to take tose classes condisered crucial for college-readiness.

We need your help. Athletic programs are costly. Equipment must be maintained for safety. Larger teams call for more uniforms for more players. Some sports require different color uniforms for home and away games. A solid plan of replacement over the years requires a continual stream of funding. Most of our tax-levy funding by the city goes towards our academic programs. We are working very hard on raising our Graduation rate and the last two years have paid off with more kids graduating on time. We are definitely on the rise in our graduation rate.

Your donation will help. You will make the difference for a young person who wants to participate in athletics, who attends a real public high school, and whose family income makes it a chore for them to stay on the team, attend their classes, perhaps work a job to help the family, take care of the younger ones in the household, and graduate on time. We try to get every student involved in the school community. Especially if you are an alumni, especially if you were on a team at Long Island City High School, it's time to give back. You will be helping young people follow in your path. All funds donated here go to the program; salaries are paid by the DOE. Fundraising expenses for this project are limited to the minimal cost of credit card transaction Even the cost of the website is being covered through a separate donation so that yours will go toward the actual program itself.
