The Student Athletic Scholarship Support Program are proud to announce that with the support of Councilman James Sanders Jr., the Rockaway Sports Association (RSA), and the New York City Housing Authority's (NYCHA) lacrosse program, our young-student athletes will have the ability to pursue their academic and athletic goals.

Coach Greg Carter proudly states, "We do not promise our players scholarships, we promise an EFFORT to assist them in obtaining scholarships to those universities that have and will show an interest in our players."

The RSA, along with the NYCHA, are ecstatic regarding universities such as Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, and Virginia to name a few, that have shown an interest in a number of our players.

More importantly, our players understand that it will be their academic skills that the coaches at those universities will be most interested in.
