GVYC Girl’s Basketball
Four years ago, we somehow found about a girl’s basketball league here in Greenwich Village called the Greenwich Village Youth Council (GVYC) league. They have a league for girls in 5th and 6th grades. And a league for girls in 7th and 8th grades.
The coaches are all women who’ve played competitive basketball. They take it seriously and so do the girls. They practice on friday nights and play their games at PS 41 on Saturday mornings.
This league has been an incredible experience for my girls. They’ve always been interested in basketball, but being coached by women who are role models, who can play, and who understand the game, has made a huge difference.
The girls played their first games today. We ended up 0 for 2, but all the girls played great.
It’s a wonderful league and if any of you have girls who want to play basketball and live in downtown NYC, send me an email and I’ll hook you up.
