Washington Park basketball league semifinals tonight

Friday, August 21, 2009 10:24 PM EDT

NEW BRITAIN — When Jesse Little and his uncle Mike saw a need for positive summer activities in New Britain, they decided to bring the community’s youth together through one of its most commonly held loves: basketball.

And so the Washington Park event was born. It’s a basketball league for high school kids from throughout the area that plays three times a week during the summer, beginning in July. The event reaches its climax in the next few days, with the semifinals tonight beginning at 7 p.m. and the finals on Tuesday starting at 8 p.m.

"They’re all high school players, the majority of them are from New Britain, but we have some other players as well," co-founder Jesse Little said. "We felt there was a need in the community for something productive for the kids to do in the summer where there’s limited things to do," he said. "If they’re with us, we can monitor them and hopefully teach them things, and they’re not out somewhere else getting into trouble."

Originally the event was held in conjunction with a church league in New Britain, but it eventually expanded due to extreme demand. "So many people came out that we felt like we needed to do more," Little said.

In fact, the league has become so big that the Littles can’t do it all by themselves anymore.  Not that they have to.  "We have a lot of volunteers, people who help us with everything," Little said. "When we started there wasn’t much [to the league], but you have to crawl before you can walk. Now we’re running."

The Littles have run to the point where they can hold the finals at night at Washington Park and draw crowds.
"It’s kind of a tradition, having it under the lights," Little said. "It’s something we try and do every year because it’s so beautiful under the lights. It’s a safe, family affair."  But at the end of the day, this event is all about the players. The league both protects and provides lessons to its players.

"Through sports you can teach so much about life," Little said. "We use basketball as that instrument to get the positve message out."
