The Dowling Athletic department are reaching out to local youth teams to find interest in playing a halftime scrimmage game at Dowling home games. It is our goal to reach out to the youth of Long Island and do our part to the help ‘Build Champions’ in athletics. We have beautiful facilities at our Brookhaven Campus and St. Johns University in Oakdale and we would like to give your players the opportunity to play on a college field.

This Fall season we succesfully invited local youth teams to the Golden Lions Field in Brookhaven, where local youth soccer teams have helped out as ballboys- and girls during the game, and played a halftime scrimmage on the field. We have recieved great response from the kids and their coaches and they all had a great day with the Golden Lions.

Youth teams can play a halftime scrimmage game at Lacrosse, Soccer and Basketball. For any other Sports, youth teams can watch the game and get autographs. 
Contact the Dowling Athletic Department today and register your youth team for a day with the Golden Lions.

The Sachem Sparks visited the Golden Lions Field the 23rd of October 2010 and their coach Dean Florian shared his experience with the Golden Lions:

"As far as the experience  not only for the girls but also the parents. It put a lot of things into perspective of where they can go or at least set a goal for themselves. The Sparks get together is always a positive experience they are building relationships that will last a lifetime and being at the Dowling Womens game was  another super experience for them"
