The Safe Haven West Side Basketball League was designed to give safe, supervised recreational activity during the winter months. It has since expanded to include a Fall, Spring, and Summer program, and week long programs during President’s week and Spring Break school holidays. During the long winter season, games and practices are scheduled on weekends in public school gyms on the Upper West Side. Boys and girls ages 8 to 18 are welcome to participate. Winter months also host a co-ed Special Needs Champion Division ages 8 and up.
