IMPORTANT INFORMATION AND DATES FOR 2021
The first game is scheduled to begin the weekend of September 10th. The regular season lasts until Mid-End November Playoffs and Championship are played after the end of the regular season with the entire season wrapping up around Thanksgiving.
During August, LBX will hold two sessions of training camp. Each session is Monday through Friday. Attendance to both is highly recommended. The first session is August 16th - 20th and the second session is August 23rd – 27th (Jr. Pee wee Only). Training camp runs from 4:00pm to 7:00pm and will take place on Randall’s Island. Overnight Camp will be the week of August 23rd – 27th for players participating on the Pee Wee, Bantam, and Intermediate teams. The Camp will take place at Camp Pontiac. In order to develop our players to the best of our ability we NEED our players participation in both sessions. HOWEVER, please communicate with us if there are any scheduling conflicts.
Regular Season practices start Monday August 30th, 2021 through the end of the season. Practices are held in either Manhattan or on Randall’s Island, throughout the week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Tackle football is a team sport and all players depend upon one another. All practices are MANDATORY. We cannot guarantee your child will play if they do not attend practice throughout the week. Safety is our number one priority. Practice is from 5:00pm - 7:00pm.
The players leave for 5 days to Camp Pontiac to help prepare and develop their game for the upcoming season. Camp is an essential part of the players development as we build team chemistry do many different activities, have chalk talk and most importantly have 12-15 practices.
A service to assist the players to and from practice. The shuttle pickup is a central location based on borough. (Now offering shuttle service for Bronx) Starts August 30th.
All games will be played on Saturdays or Sundays (some intermediate games may be played on Friday nights). Our home games will be played at Randall’s Island (subject to change).
