Low-Cost Youth Clinics Offered at Basketball City

Basketball City's new facility at Pier 36.

The operators of Basketball City are shooting for a March opening date for their new facility on Pier 36, at the end of Montgomery Street.   The company, which hosts corporate recreational leagues, has run into a lot of construction delays and other complications. But as the debut of the $12 million complex draws near, plans are underway for a series of youth basketball clinics.

As part of his commitment to Community Board 3, Basketball City owner Bruce Radler agreed to offer the low-cost clinics for kids in the neighborhood.  Each clinic will last six weeks and will cost a total of $25. The sessions will be held on Sundays.  If you have a child between the ages of 7 and 16, they’re eligible. To sign up, email CB3 member Thomas Parker at tomparker@rcn.com.

Remember to include the name of your child, his/her age, your name and contact info.  Kids who live in Community District 3 (Lower East Side, East Village, most of Chinatown) are being given top priority.
