Bronx DA: Bronx District Attorney Darcel D. Clark Announces Locations of Saturday Night Lights Program in the Bronx




Bronx District Attorney Darcel D. Clark announced the expansion of the Saturday Night Lights program with 23 additional sites in the Bronx, joining the two that opened in 2019.

          District Attorney Clark said, “I am thrilled that the Saturday Night Lights Program is expanding across the City, with the Bronx getting 23 of the 100 new locations. These gyms are exactly what we need in our communities.  It gives our youth a free, safe, indoor place on Saturday nights where they can shoot some hoops or play soccer. Programs like SNL instill teamwork, leadership, and strengthens the relationship between law enforcement and residents through sports and social activity. They are what we need to prevent crime and give kids opportunities. Eighteen of the Bronx’ 25 sites are operating now in neighborhoods throughout the Bronx, so I hope our young people will participate.”

Children ages 11 to 18 can show up to the sites during program hours, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. every Saturday, without needing to register, and participate in the free program. SNL offers several indoor sports, including basketball, soccer and volleyball, as well as dance, martial arts, and other activities.
