ALL ABOUT US
Nestled in the greater area of San Francisco , Antioch Mid Night Basketball was founded in 2020.
Midnight basketball is an initiative which developed in the 1990s to curb inner-city crime in the United States by keeping urban youth off the streets and engaging them with alternatives to drugs and crime.
The Grace Arms of Antioch will host the Antioch mid night basketball league on Friday nights.
Young men aged from 18 to 29, men of various minority groups, could go and play basketball during the peak crime hours of 19:00 to 0200.
Prior to playing there will be informative programs that gave them helpful skills for everyday life.
It is a way for young men to form a sense of community, get out of a dangerous environment, and give them a sense of hope for the future.
Midnight basketball helped decrease crime in the neighborhoods where it was run, and it was a positive outlet for many young men. It helped many stay out of trouble and off the streets.
