Channel Hoops: Cops Versus Kids A Big Hit


The First Annual 100th Precinct Cops Vs. Kids Basketball Game in Broad Channel was a huge success on Friday, August 11. The Shamrocks from the Summer Youth Basketball League took on officers from the 100th Precinct and both teams brought their best. There was plenty of dazzling passes, outstanding shooting and amazing plays as the Boys in Blue outscored the BC Teens in the first of what hopes to be an annual event.

Thanks to all the Officers from the Precinct who came out to take on the teens from the Channel. Special thanks to coaches Pat and Jack who spent their summer organizing and coaching the Shamrock Summer Shootout, which concluded last Wednesday evening with the divisional championship games. Thanks to Refs Dom and Skippy for volunteering their time officiating this hard fought basketball game.

And Special thanks to 100th Pct. Officer Maurice Moore who helped organize the game. Officer Moore does a wonderful job assisting our community coordinating/attending all the parades and events throughout the year. We are lucky to have him in our community.

This is what it’s all about: the local cops and teens interacting with each other on a positive note, building a foundation of trust and friendship.  The officers showed that they are truly interested in helping all of the communities they serve by attending this event in their off time.

Thank you to all who came out and supported the players on both sides of the courts, it truly was an amazing show of solidarity and respect, and we look forward to growing this event next year.
