#Fields4NYCYouth

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a reversal of the recently-imposed “first-come-first-play” policy for the city’s athletic fields and facilities. The New York City Department of Parks and Recreation will begin issuing permits to youth organizations that had previously applied. We appreciate the commitment and passion of all of our families and young players who wrote letters to the Mayor, the NYC Parks Commissioner, and other city officials, and of every one of the 8,875 individuals who signed the #Fields4NYCYouth petition to support the return of youth sports in compliance with safety protocols. We all eagerly await the start of the season and a better fall for all of New York City’s children and youth! PRESS RELEASE

South Bronx United believes that athletics, mentoring, and academic support services are critical to the physical health, mental health, and overall development of New York City's young people. These benefits are no less critical during a pandemic when youth are more isolated than ever and facing a growing educational divide based on geography, race, and socioeconomic status. Without in-person opportunities, these programs and services cannot support youth to the full extent necessary. On August 15th, South Bronx United will begin #SBURestart, a phased reopening plan to resume competitive and community soccer programs and in-person educational and college prep programming. The plan is guided by five principles, the first of which is the health and safety of our community, including youth participants, families, staff, and volunteers. The other principles include participant choice and flexibility, strong programming and services, socio-emotional support and compassion, and the SBU Values (Show Commitment, Bring Integrity, Unite Our Community). SBU's Reopening and Safety Plan is available for public review.
