The Official Site of the New York Islanders

Andrew Ladd and the New York Islanders are proud of the young leaders in our community working hard to make a difference in the lives of others. The Ladd's Leaders program was created to recognize the amazing contributions of these young people and to reward them for their efforts.

Now, you can nominate a young leader who has demonstrated outstanding community service to be selected for an outstanding opportunity. Whether you know a young person volunteering for poverty, literacy, environmental, or other causes, we want to hear about them and potentially recognize them as a Ladd's Leader.

If selected, each Ladd's Leader will be invited to an upcoming New York Islanders game (with an adult chaperone) at the Barclays Center. The chosen Leader will sit in Andrew Ladd's seats for the game, high five the team as they are coming onto the ice and even meet Andrew following the game.

How to Nominate:

If you know an inspiring leader in your community (from ages 5 to 17), please send an email to with the following information:

  1. Name and age of your nominee
  2. Hometown (We are accepting candidates in the tri-state area.)
  3. What contribution has this young leader made to the community? Why are they a good fit for Ladd's Leaders? Please explain in as much detail as possible.
  4. Include a recent photo of the applicant.
