The 78th Precinct Youth Council has two new programs starting up. As part of its Sports Fundamental Series, it has developed a new training program for flag football, starting in Fall 2012. Additionally, its Brooklyn Comets girls basketball program now welcomes 5th graders.
The Sports Fundamentals for Flag Football classes will be the latest addition to the 78PYC’s training programs, which already includes clinics for baseball and basketball. With the help of experienced professionals who have structured and will run the new flag football fundamentals program, 78PYC participants will get a jump start on a path toward physical competency and confidence.
The Brooklyn Comets, a girls’ AAU basketball program under the umbrella of the 78PYC, is expanding to include 5th graders this season. Open practices are being held throughout May on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 7-9pm at the West Brooklyn Community High School, located at 41st St and Fort Hamilton Parkway.
