Young Adult Basketball League Leaves Participants with Positive Perception of Police

The St. Louis Basketball League slam dunked 168 hours of life skills sessions, and left 100 percent of participants with a now positive perception of police officers, according to survey results. For 2014, more than 750 young men between the ages of 18-35 formed teams for several 11-week basketball leagues. Police officers coach teams in the league.

To play in the league, participants are required to take six life skills classes coordinated by Fathers' Support Center, which teach the young men about topics ranging from health and fitness, to financial literacy, to STD prevention, to fatherhood responsibilities.

The St. Louis Basketball League is a partnership between ARCHS, St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, St. Louis Department of Parks, Recreation, and Forestry, and Fathers' Support Center.
