As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy is not hosting Youth Basketball Clinics this Fall 2020. The safety of Conservancy staff, partners, and program participants remains our number one priority. Should conditions permit, we hope to resume this program for the 2021 season.
Please check this page for updates, and sign up for our emails to receive updates about Youth Basketball Clinics and all of the programming the Conservancy has to offer.
