BASKETBALLUpdated Wednesday July 31, 2019 by Robert Elkins .
PW PAL BASKETBALL, affectionately known as “Hoops by The Harbor” boasts one of the finest outdoor basketball courts around. It has been recently resurfaced and painted with special outdoor material for a gentler on your knees feel. The court has lights, glass backboards, smaller side hoops for younger players and bleacher seating for fans We hope you enjoy what we've built! The court is open to the public when no PW PAL program is taking place.
If you choose to play in any of our programs, whether it be skills clinics, Teen Leagues, Men's Leagues or any of our AAU teams, you should know the Coaches.
