Youth program gives children safe place to play sports

Posted: Updated:

A program is giving children a safe space to play sports on Saturday nights.

The Saturday Night Lights program says their goal is to prevent youth violence by giving children a place to play sports.

The free program started in Manhattan and has now expanded to the other four boroughs.

The Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark says she wants to open 100 more centers in New York City on Saturday nights.

The program welcomes boys and girls from 8 to 18-years-old.
