With the need to avoid all unnecessary physical interactions, South Bronx United has cancelled all programming through April 17th. The Recreational Soccer Program and Global Youth League will resume no sooner than April 18th. It is likely that the program start will be pushed back further. You will see further updates from us via email and social media.

As individuals, we must also remember that we can make a difference by taking appropriate steps. Most importantly, health officials are asking everyone to stay home and avoid unnecessary interactions as much as possible regardless of your personal health. Make sure that you and your children wash hands regularly. If you are sick, contact your doctor to let them know your symptoms. If you need help getting medical care, call 311. NYC has committed to provide medical care regardless of immigration status or ability to pay.

South Bronx United’s office will also be closed during this period. However, staff will be working remotely. We will continue to be available on our office phone number and by email to address any questions or concerns. We are here to help all of our families and community members and provide whatever assistance we can. Read the letter from Executive Director Andrew So: English | Español
