The Metroball New York Ave Classic Youth Streetball League has always been FREE for all youth since 2000! (19 YEARS)!
This event keeps the youth busy during the summer months and deters deviant behavior. This year is especially important because of the recent violence in DC. A former Summer Youth Participant was murdered two weeks ago and another nighborhood youth was also murdered along with his father. Outlets like ours help the youth interact in a positive way during the summer months. The past few weeks have been tough, but the 19th Annual New York Ave Classic kept rolling on!!
This year we saw the largest amount of teams and youth that have ever participated in recent years. The most special thing this summer was to see many former participants coaching and helping the younger youth that are in the program now. This has really helped our growth. The final weekend is coming up on August 3rd and we will crown 2019 Champions in each division. We will send another update as soon as the weekend is over.
