The Atlas Foundation funds and supports a 5th Grade Basketball League on Staten Island. The league is comprised of boys’ and girls’ divisions. Each team has a cheerleading squad comprised of fellow students from the same school. Several area schools participate and enter one team in each division to represent their school. This league is designed as a behavior modification tool in that eligibility to participate in the league depends on the student’s academic and behavioral performance in school.
Games are held on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays from December through March, and the season ends with a championship game and league party.
If you would like to learn more about the league, have your school participate, or support and assist the league, please contact the Atlas Foundation at 718-980-7037.
