Long Island Storm Lacrosse founded in 2000 on the idea of teaching our players sportsmanship and the finer points of the game of Lacrosse, while providing a quality and well organized friendly and family oriented environment.
Jaydogs was organized in 2012 to give boys and girls the chance to play lacrosse in the fall and winter in various leagues on Long Island. The boys and girls playing with the Jaydogs would then go back to playing with their town teams in the Spring. Our hope is to use this program to feed the Long Island Storm and some of the best girls programs after 6th grade. We are providing teams at age groups from 2nd grade through 6th grade.
Long Island Storm Lacrosse welcomes boys from all over Long Island to apply to any of our three, age oriented, Lacrosse teams; and we ask you visit our ABOUT US page to learn more about our organization, our coaches, and our teams.

At Long Island Storm Lacrosse, we’re all about the children who play lacrosse with us. We like to think that besides creating great physically fit lacrosse players, that we are also building their character and self confidence. To insure that we always keep our focus on the needs of our players, we became a non-profit 501 c 3 organization, one of the few non-profit lacrosse organizations in NYS.
We’re all about the kids, and we’re proud to say that every year — approximately 90% of our graduating high school players are accepted to D-I, D-II, and D-III colleges with athletic scholarships.

Frank V. Sammartano, Director and Founder
Frank founded the Long Island Storm in 2000 after coaching many years with the Long Island Metro Lacrosse Foundation. He has coached in various High Schools in Nassau County, he also coached at Farmingdale University. Frank has been coaching youth lacrosse both in Nassau and Suffolk Counties for well over 35 years. He moved to Jericho in 1981 along with his wife Martha and started asking why there was no Lacrosse in their school district. After being told by various community members and school officials the community was too small for lacrosse as they had other sports. Frank in 1992 along with a couple other lacrosse minded community members formed the Jericho Lacrosse Club, (which is the Mother corporation for the Long Island Storm and Jaydogs). In 1995 the Jericho Middle School started the first lacrosse teams. Now the Lacrosse Clubs has 12 teams both boy’s and girl’s and the School district has both boy’s and girl’s teams in the Middle and High School.
