Asphalt Green is a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting individuals of all ages and backgrounds achieve health through a lifetime of sports and fitness. Community service is at the core of our origin and at the heart of our mission. We are dedicated to helping New York City residents of all ages and backgrounds live an active and healthy lifestyle through our high-quality sports, fitness and aquatics programs. Our fee-based youth sports and aquatics program curriculum is built on three tiers—classes, recreational leagues and competitive teams. Our classes teach fundamental skills and then our recreational leagues give athletes the opportunity to put these newly learned skills into action. Finally, players progress to our competitive teams where they compete against the best. As a nonprofit, we are committed to bringing the same high-quality instruction of our fee-based programs to our free community programs. Through our FIT KIDS FIT CITY campaign, we deliver free and low-cost community programs to nearly 31,000 children annually in schoolyards, gymnasiums and pools across New York City. In addition, we provide scholarships for our fee-based programs to talented individuals with financial need.
