Thank You for Joining Us! 

For over 25 years Big Swim Big Kick has been our signature event representing a community-wide celebration of the power of sports and fitness. Each year we have welcomed thousands of children and their families to Asphalt Green for a day of fun, both in the pool and on Litwin Field.  

To mark the 50th anniversary of Asphalt Green’s presence in our community, we announced Big Week! It was a week-long celebration of the power of sports and fitness for our community that showcased the wide range of all that Asphalt Green has to offer. 

Our members, our Recess Enhancement Program schools, kids in our community sports leagues, students from our Waterproofing program, and everyone else who’s a part of our wonderful community were all invited to participate. Big Week was about getting all New Yorkers moving!
