Summary of Sports Day
The Police Athletic League Inc. hosts an annual Sports Day every summer. What is Sports Day? It is an event designed for children primarily in middle school to enhance physical development and social skills. This summer the P.A.L hosted Sports Day at Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx, N.Y. We serviced over 250 4th and 5th graders from 13 PAL centers spread across all 5 boroughs of New York.
The sports included were the following: Basketball, Football, Soccer, Track & field. The participants are broken up into 4 groups (1 per station) and take part with their groups for about 45 minutes then rotate to the next sport. Sports Day consistent of 2 rotations, a break and 2 more rotations. We provide lunch to our participants during the break which included an awesome dance competition. To ensure punctuality at Sports Day, we also offer giveaways and trinkets for the most punctual centers.
