Support The Courts

We were excited to surpass our initial fundraising goal of $50,000 — THANKS TO OUR MANY GENEROUS DONORS!

Phase 1 of the Support the Courts project, the replacement of the six backboards and Phase 2, repaving the entire court area, have been completed and the backboards and courts look great.

Phase 3 involves sealing the courts and painting the lines using the Shelter Island School colors of Blue & Gray, from the 3-point line to the baseline.  Phase 3 has just been completed.

To address Phases 4 and 5, which involve landscaping and parking lot enhancements, we now need to raise an additional $30,000.  Please consider making a donation.  Your support would be greatly appreciated!

Additional information about the Support the Courts project has been published in the 6/24/2021 issue of the Shelter Island Reporter in an article written by Shelter Island Town Councilman Jim Colligan. ]  And another Reporter article, written by editor Ambrose Clancy, updating the information and providing a photo of the painted courts was in the issue on 8/5/2021.
