The Harlem Jets are committed to helping young people reach their full potential through participation in competitive team sports and academic enrichment. Our goal is for each athlete to learn teamwork, good sportmanship, healthy values, leadership skills, and lifelong friendships. The organization emphasizes not only winning, but having fun and building character. Harlem Jets Basketball was founded in 2013 and they have quickly become a force on the AAU scene. The Harlem Jets field four different teams at the 6th, 7th, 9th and 10th-grade levels. Harlem Jets Football is the oldest and largest of the Jet’s programs with more than 150 young men playing football between the ages of 5 and 18. This rigorous program begins in March and ends at the AYF National Championship in Florida in December. 2014 was the most successful year for the football program. Four teams went to AYF National Championships and they walked away with one 4th place finish, two 2nd place finishes, and our 10U team won the National Champioship making them the first Harlem Jets Football team to win a national championship. This success is built on the principles of HARDWORK, DISCIPLINE, & TEAMWORK. Our teams compete in the Empire State and Pioneer Youth Football Leagues.
