Ice Hockey now recognized Ice Hockey as a "Club Sport"

Farmingdale School District is announcing its decision to formally recognize and support the local ice hockey team on a district level. 

Back in March, the Farmingdale Ice Hockey team—which plays under the New York Islanders High School Hockey League—attended the board of education meeting to advocate for ice hockey to be recognized as a varsity sport. However, ice hockey isn’t on the list of sanctioned sports for Section 8 Athletics—as dictated by the state. The granting of a varsity designation goes beyond any district’s control.
