Roosevelt PAL, Legislator Abrahams Announce Opening of Registration for Double-Dutch Clinic

(ROOSEVELT, N.Y.) - Nassau County Legislator Kevan Abrahams (D - Freeport) and the Roosevelt Police Activity League (PAL) are encouraging residents to sign up for their six-week Double Dutch clinic at Centennial Park.

Instructors Victoria Cleckley and Tamika Cox will lead the weekly clinic, which is scheduled for 6 - 7:30 p.m. for six consecutive Wednesday evenings from May 12 - June 16 (rain date June 23). The clinic has a maximum capacity of 20 participants and is open to children ages 9 and up. Visit http://rooseveltpal.website.sportssignup.com/ and follow the registration link to sign up.

“This Double-Dutch clinic is the first of many structured, supervised and affordable extracurricular programs that the Roosevelt PAL will bring to the community during the coming months in pursuit of our shared commitment to enriching the lives of young people,” Legislator Abrahams said. “We look forward welcoming you to Centennial Park this spring and hope you’ll stay tuned for future PAL programs this summer.”

“It’s important to see our children safe while out in the community, and the Roosevelt PAL Double Dutch team will teach the kids about teamwork and how to stay fit and healthy,” Cox, a board member of the Roosevelt PAL, said. “During the pandemic, obesity has been on the rise due to remote learning, not being able to participate in school activities, and the absence of gym classes, which is a requirement for our young people. We’re looking forward to having a great future with some of the programs the Roosevelt PAL has to offer.”
