Summer Basketball League
Hoboken Youth Summer Basketball League starts July 5
Hoboken boys and girls aged 12 to 18 are invited to join the 2011 Summer Basketball League. The league begins on July 5th and plays for eight weeks. Players will practice, play games and participate in tournaments throughout the summer at Church Square Park and behind 540 Marshall Drive. All skill levels are welcome.
The program is sponsored primarily by the Hoboken Housing Authority and Hoboken Police Athletic League.
“The summer program keeps our children off the streets,” said Luis Acevedo, volunteer and coach. “We give them an opportunity to network with their peers and the people in the city while staying out of trouble.”
“The housing authority is proud to be a sponsor of this league since its inception,” said Carmelo Garcia, executive director, Hoboken Housing Authority. “It gives our kids an opportunity to have access to recreation opportunities during the summer months.”
There will be an all-star championship and an end-of-season barbecue celebration.
