The Safe Haven West Side Basketball League was designed to give neighborhood children a safe, supervised recreational activity during the winter months. From early December to mid-March, games and practices are scheduled on weekends in public school gyms located on the Upper West Side.
Players will learn new skills, develop court sense, gain confidence, and make new friends.
WINTER LEAGUE STARTS DECEMBER 7 & 8, 2019
