Help start Kingston's first citywide Summer Basketball League! The Unity Basketball League will give teens a safe environment to spend time with their friends, be active, and have fun. Basketball helps build character, self-discipline, self-esteem and helps provide youth with a fun way to stay safe when school is not in session.
Giving our teens the opportunity to get together in an environment where they feel safe, have positive interactions with their peers, and good role models gives them the foundation to explore the world in an apprpriate way. The league is a way for youth to meet new youth, reconnect with friends, and show off their skills.
The Unity League will run the entire month of June. The 15 games per week will take place at the YMCA in Kingston. There will be 240 participants, at least 1/3 of them girls.
The Unity League is a collaboration of community organizations, Family of Woodstock via the Hodge Center, City of Kingston, Ulster County, Boys & Girls Club of Ulster County, the YMCA of Kingston and Ulster County, and community members who want to keep our local teens safe and engaged in positive activities.
