The Roosevelt Island Youth Program's 10 to 15 year old ladies volleyball team showed off their new uniforms this week during practice, coaches Paul Hardy and Ernest Keith have been working with the girls since October to learn the rules and be ready for game play. The girls meet Wednesday and Thursday 4PM to 6PM to practice and will soon start playing league games, if you are interested in joining come by the school or call 212-527-2505 after 3PM for additional information. This is just one of the many activities being held at the Roosevelt Island Youth Program so com-on get involved. A picture of the team is below, lets wish them luck!
As reported last week, the Roosevelt Island After School PS/IS 217 Beacon Program is in danger of being eliminated by proposed New York City Budget cuts.
