    Sports Safety Conference

Keeping our youth physically and ethically safe on the field

The Nassau County District Attorney's Office and its Long Island Youth Safety Coalition held its Sports Safety Conference at Hofstra University on April 11th which proved a resounding success. With an expert line-up of A-list speakers like Deputy Bureau Chief of the Nassau County Court Trial Bureau, Kenneth Kunken, and popular WFAN Sports Commentator, Rick Wolff and over 20 professionals, 2013 is set to provide even more content and even more opportunity for sports professionals and parents throughout Long Island.

The event featured practical workshops, a marvelous luncheon, and a raffle ceremony attracting over 200 attendees, exhibitors and speakers.

We also received great coverage from our friends at Cablevision who gave stayed at the conference all day long and interviewed many of our speakers. See the video below and on our Videos tab as well!
