Tenafly Boys Lacrosse Spring 2015


The Tenafly Boys Lacrosse program will start this spring.  Our boys will be registering and playing with the Jr. Norsemen Lacrosse Club out of Demarest.  Our boys will be playing on the same team as Tenafly and Demarest players.  We will be using fields here in Tenafly as well as some fields in Demarest.  We will have youth coaches from Demarest and Tenafly.

Tenafly High School Boys Lacrosse Coach Eric Quaranti and his players will be highly involved in the youth program.

Tenafly Activates Its Lightning Safety System


In the event that lightning is detected in our area, the horns that are located around the borough will blast for 15 seconds alerting you to immediately exit fields and playgrounds.  When the fields and playgrounds are “under alert” a strobe located on or above the horn will continually flash until an all clear is given in a minimum of 30 minutes.  Lightning alert activations may exceed 30 minutes if subsequent strikes are detected. Three five second blasts are the “all clear” signal.  Please be aware that the lightning detection system will be active between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m.  The horns and strobe lights will not turn-on after 10:00 pm.

When going outside, plan ahead so that you can get to a safe place quickly if a thunderstorm threatens.  If the sky looks threatening or if you hear thunder, get inside a safe place immediately.  Once inside, avoid contact with corded phones, electrical equipment, plumbing, windows and doors. There is no safe place outside when thunderstorms are in the area.  If you hear thunder, you are likely within striking distance of the storm.

Please click on the “Lightning Detection Information” link located on the top right hand side of this page.
