Big Apple Games begins! Free sports activities for kids in all five boroughs

e00006444 The DOE has officially launched Big Apple Games , a six-week program offering free recreational activities for kids ages 8 to 19. The no-cost fun has been organized by the Public Schools Athletic League (PSAL), which oversees competitive high school sports during the academic year. There are 48 spots in all five boroughs where your brood can participate. Not only will there be tons of traditional sports (including basketball, softball, baseball, volleyball, swimming, football, soccer and lacrosse), but arts and crafts activities are on the agenda, too. Want some extra incentive to take part? Various locations will offer special programs with local pros, including basketball clinics with players from the New York Liberty and Harlem Wizards. Time to get your game on! Big Apple Games run through August 13. Click here for a list of activities and locations, or dial 311 for additional info.
