“The Peace summer league experience the past two summers was incredible. It was a way for the boys to compete during COVID in a safe, encouraging, and competitive environment. The boys create bonds that go far beyond the playground.” -Matt Kiger
"I think it was a great experience for the kids especially during these unprecedented times, seeing the kids in the community come together and compete in a healthy and positive environment was awesome to see. My son in particular enjoyed the experience and given that he's been playing with Peace since he was 7 years old, it's great to see his growth over the years as a young player as he goes through all of the channels that Peace has to offer which now includes the Peace Summer league." - Alva Hasan
"I very much enjoy going to Scalzi Park after work to watch games. There are always people to catch up with. The boys have a good time on and off the court. Seeing the kids develop and occasionally do amazing things is at least as entertaining as a following the NBA." - Vaidas Uzgiris
"Positive, progressive and engaging experience in a time where there were limitations on activities for youth." - Erica Perkins
"The Stamford Peace Summer League provides an outstanding outlet for summer basketball that my sons play in and enjoy. It is a great option for kids in the community and well suited for both experienced players and those new to basketball. The outdoor venue and evening games create an exciting atmosphere for players and spectators!" - John Curley
"The Summer basketball league was a nice experience for Parents as well as the players. The families in the community had something to look forward to doing four nights a week. The children were able to enjoy playing basketball with friends. As a parent I appreciate the Peace league for running this program for our community, this enables our children to express and show off their skills by doing what they love doing, In the midst of the pandemic." - Pamela Bennett
"We always look forward to the Peace Summer League. It’s a great opportunity to have the kids enjoy some positive coaching (a Peace hallmark) and some friendly, competitive basketball throughout the summer." - Carmen Failla
to Team Kentucky and Team Warriors on their Championship wins, and to all our Summer League players for a great season of competition and teamwork.
See you next summer!
