The majority of our kids live in the Main South area, which is dubbed Zone 8 by the Worcester Police Department out of eight designated zones in the city. Despite being the smallest zone, Main South accounts for over 25% of the city’s crime, the highest rate of any other zone. Since most of our kids live within walking distance to our facility, their outdoor time is limited or often eliminated due to the criminal activity that lives within their neighborhood. It is our responsibility to provide our members who optimal athletic programming and plenty of physical activity options including competitive and non-competitive sports.
