Stony Brook University was founded in 1957, and in the years to follow, its sports teams were known as the Soundmen, the Baymen, the Warriors, and even the Patriots. The latter of those monikers stuck until 1994, when the school finally took on the role as Seawolves: a mythical sea creature of the Tlingit tribe thought to bring good luck to anyone fortunate enough to see it or get its autograph.
Today, 20 men's and women's varsity teams compete as Seawolves across the America East Conference and the Colonial Athletic Association. Bearing the school's colors of red, grey, and blue, the student-athletes receive boosts from Stony Brook's renowned marching band, Wolfie the mascot, and a group of passionate student fans nicknamed "The Pack."
When you are on the hunt for something fun to do this weekend, head to Friends Network in Brewster.

43,000 square feet await airsoft players at Strikeforce Sports' indoor, close-quarters combat field. Once games start, that space starts to feel like an entire city. Foam boards have been transformed to look like buildings of brick and stone. Among them, obstacles such as trash cans and cars are the only things standing between players and their opponents. Strategy plays a key role here, as players choose whether to sneak slowly around corners, go through crawl spaces, or storm in and face their challengers head-on.
Away from the competitive space, Airsoft pistols and rifles, along with other gear, blanket the walls of the onsite pro shop. Here, staffers help players customize their airsoft guns with add-ons, including red dot sights. In addition to restocking their equipment, players can refuel between rounds at the full-service restaurant and sports bar.
Bright-yellow spheres hurtle through the air like comets in space or butter pats in a food fight. Unlike comets or butter, however, these objects can be whacked with a racket on Intensity's seven indoor tennis courts. Here, adults and kids learn to volley with precision during clinics, camps, and team programs. Accomplished tennis pros lead one-on-one lessons for students of all levels and a high-performance academy for elite young players. During Turbo Tennis sessions, instructors pair forehands and backhands with endurance exercises to help players sculpt their physiques and up their game.
Dance, yoga, and biking tone muscles and melt calories during many of Intensity's other fitness classes. Latin-inspired Zumba workouts boost energy levels in a 3,000-square-foot studio whose booming beats and intelligent lighting system simulate a thriving nightclub or a disco aboard a flying saucer. Octane elliptical machines, True treadmills, and Life Fitness strength-training equipment fuel solo workouts in the studio's gym, and a four-lane 100-foot track helps athletes sprint their way toward optimal speed and agility.
After workouts, exercisers may unwind with Thai massages, respites in the onsite saunas, and trips to the juice bar. Childcare staff can supervise kids 12 weeks and older while parents exercise, work, or run errands.
If there's one thing soccer, football, and rock climbing all have in common, it's that they require space. Fortunately, space is something that Sono Field House has an awful lot of. In fact this sports emporium has 52,000 square feet of it divided up into specialized areas for indoor soccer, baseball, lacrosse, field hockey, and even birthday parties or company gatherings. The Adventure Area alone occupies 1,500 feet, which houses everything a budding adventurer or chimpanzee-in-training might want: an indoor rock-climbing wall and a high-ropes challenge course.
