Roosevelt Island Community Outreach Basketball Game Between Public Safety Department & Youth Center A Great Success!
I watched a pretty good game of full court basketball last night between the Roosevelt Island Public Safety Department and Youth Center at the Blackwell Courts. The game was part of Roosevelt Island Connect, a Community Outreach Initiative between the Public Safety Department and Youth Center.
The Public Safety Team was in blue and Youth Center in yellow. The game was well played with some great shots, drives to the basket and tough picks.
According to Roosevelt Island Public Safety Director Keith Guerra:
The Youth Center team came out victorious with a 62-60 win over the Public Safety Department. Many folks in attendance commented on what a great game it was. But, more important were the new relationships that have been forged by this event. The players from both teams went back to the Youth Center afterwards and talked over Pizza and Refreshments. Kudos to Charlie DelFino and Coach Steve Morgan for their involvement in the festivities.
This was a great idea and I hope it continues with similar events.
Good job by all involved!
