Reviews
History

We began as the Brooklyn Athletic League in Brooklyn, New York and changed  our name four decades ago to the Staten Island Basketball League  as we migrated over the Verrazano Bridge Staten island. We play full court ball three times per week in this 90 plus year old gym. Old school gym for old school players. We have been a magnet over the years  for players  who were tired of  the run, gun and  selfish ways of younger players in the parks.

Players that could not take the heavy wear and tear on their bodies pounding concrete all the time. We became a haven for an army of these types of players creating a Pick Up Basketball paradise.

Founded, nurtured and managed all of these years by Craig Raucher it is called a league but it is much more then that. Really we are a group of men coming together Monday and Wednesday nights and Saturday mornings like religious zealots seeking the high of a Pick Up Basketball win in controlled pick up games. Living on the winning shot until the next get together or the great pass or the monster rebound ecstasy and agony play out.

Throughout these past 41 years over 400 players have come through the old gym doors to play regularly. We have had a long and rich history and a bright future.
