The Dyker Heights Athletic Association provides baseball, softball, NFL Flag Football, Basketball, and Indoor Soccer for boys and girls from ages 5 to 15. We especially seek to provide organized, well-structured recreational opportunities for all the participants and we expect those persons selected as coaches to provide quality instruction. Our emphasis is on participation rather than competition. Adding structure and supervision builds character as well as self-esteem and self- respect. Remember our children are our future, so the more we help them, the more we help ourselves. Our efforts have not simply been to “keep the kids busy” but rather to offer wholesome, organized athletic activities where young people could learn a sport, meet and work with other youth on a team basis, and challenge themselves to use their talents and abilities to mature more fully.
