The NYPD's Police Athletic League hosted a day dedicated to sports and kids Friday.

Around 300 kids from all five boroughs participated in the annual 'PAL Sports Day' event at Van Cortlandt Park.

Children between ages 9 and 10 trained with staff members to become more athletic and to learn better sportsmanship and teamwork.

Organizers say companies including Nike sponsor the event.

This is the 10th year the event has taken place.
