New York Dragons teams are getting ready for what is sure to be an exciting season. After a very successful 2016-2017 season the teams have gained invaluable experiences. Our 8th grade team finished 85-5 and the #1 8th grade team in the country.
2017-2018 is guaranteed to be an exciting season as we continue building a tradition of excellence - encouraging both academic leadership and athletic! Our program primarily deals with inner city youth that are less fortunate in the town of Middletown, NY. We have a history of helping young athletes from Middletown matriculate into colleges and universities all over the country. New York Dragons are built on showcasing the student athlete talents on and off the court. With the help of all coaches in the organization we are pushing the players to their full potential.
The current 2016-2017 season has evidenced the fortitude, diligence, and effort put forth by these young men to continue to progress toward their dreams. They recently won the FAB48 Championship in Las Vegas, Nevada playing in the 9th grade division. We also finished #1 team in the country in the 8th grade division.
This season we hope to provide these young scholar athletes the opportunity to showcase their talent in Wisconsin, Indiana, California, Virginia, North Carolina, Texas, and Las Vegas... Each showcase would allow them to be exposed to college recruiters to further provide them with student-athlete opportunities.
The accomplishments we have made as student athletes, coaches, and an organization take hard work, effort and resources. The large majority of our program's funding continues to be generated from the student athletes, their parents, and the support and generosity in the Orange County community. As our players work hard this season on the court and in the classroom, we respectfully request your financial assistance as we continue our efforts in providing our student athletes the most rewarding experience possible. Additionally, the contributions we receive will also allow us to cover the costs of new uniforms, other items including travel costs and equipment. Most importantly, your generous donation will provide our players and coaches with the support needed to develop strong, disciplined young athletes of character and integrity. We are trying to raise $30,000 to help pay for all expenses for the players. For any information please contact 845-576-3626.
