CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) RELATED UPDATE 10/14/20
Dear Safe Haven West Side Basketball Families:
Many of you have asked about the status of our basketball programs, hoping for dates and details.
Unfortunately, our programs, like so many others, remain in a holding pattern.
Both the state and city have deemed basketball games a “high-risk” activity. In any case, as of early October, the NYC Dept. of Education is not issuing permits for indoor sports at NYC schools.
We will keep checking back with the DOE and keep you informed of any new developments.
Stay well, stay safe, stay positive….
Should you have any further concerns or questions, please reach out to us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Safe Haven West Side Basketball News
Safe Haven West Side Basketball attended the first ever LeagueApps conference: NextUp2019. Guest speakers and hosts at the conference included Cari Champion (ESPN Sportscenter Anchor), Shane Battier (former NBA player), Rick Kleinman (Kevin Durant’s manager) and Tiki Barber (former NFL football player). Although the conference focus was the overall youth sports industry, Safe Haven maintained focus as a non-profit whose priority is keeping basketball accessible for all. Jason Sacks from Positive Coaching was also in attendance, as well as representatives of youth sports programs from across the nation. Safe Haven was proud to be part of this conference in our very own NYC, alongside youth sports developers from the Cavaliers, Golden State Warriors, and the president of Social Responsibility and Player Programs for the NBA, Kathy Behrens.
