At Asphalt Green, we are committed to improving the health and fitness of all New Yorkers, regardless of age, ability and economics. That’s why we operate a variety of programs that allow those who might not have such experiences to share in the joy and benefits of sports, aquatics and fitness. We call these our community programs.

Our youth community programs help children develop positive attitudes toward being active through play and sports. We strive to instill healthy habits in each child. Our core community programs for kids are: Waterproofing, Recess Enhancement Program and Community Sports Leagues. These youth programs function in partnership with New York City public schools and charter schools, targeting schools where rates of obesity are typically higher. This year, our youth community programs are getting 31,000 elementary school kids in more than 100 schools active and moving.

We are also committed to keeping senior citizens active and strong as they age through our Senior Fitness community program. In partnership with the NYC Department for the Aging and senior organizations in East Harlem, we offer seniors free group exercise classes. Through our fitness classes, seniors build strength and confidence, allowing them to remain active in their communities.
