One of the best things for our youth today is sports. Whether it be through school or the community having our kids participate in sports is very beneficial to them in many ways. Not only does it teach them about working with others, it is good for them physically teaching them to be active and enjoy it at the same time. It gives them a sense of involvement and shows them how every little part of a team is important.
In both New York and New Jersey where crime rate can be high and the city is filled with multiple ways of fast paced life, sports are even more so encouraged to help keep the youth of today headed down the right rode that will lead to success in life.
Our blog follows youth basketball in the cities of both New York and New Jersey. Offering a direct line to different programs and clubs established for the kids in these cities that want to play basketball and succeed. Especially those going to high school and preparing for college. Being involved in a sport can lead to college recruitment and even scholarships that will aid in the cost of expensive tuition and other school fees.
