As part of the Chelsea Piers Sports & Entertainment Complex, located at the historic Chelsea Piers, the Golf Club perches over the same port that once welcomed ships into New York City. Now, golfers tee up in the driving range's 52 heated and weather-protected stalls, which overlook the glinting waters of the Hudson River. Automatic tee-up systems position balls for launch across the 200-yard, net-enclosed fairway. A putting green allows patrons to improve their short game, and two Full Swing simulators encourage them to take hacks in virtual environs, transporting them to famous courses across the country or fifth-grade birthday parties where they missed the pi?ata. Children and adults alike can enlist in Golf Club at Chelsea Piers? classes, which stratify students by experience level. The 12-member coaching staff includes PGA and LPGA professionals, and sessions take place in a 2,000-square-foot teaching facility.

Healthy Buffalo has one primary objective: transform Buffalo's citizens into models of health and well-being. But instead of urging everyone in the community to spend their lunch break bench-pressing a coworker, the organization has ironed out a handful of initiatives to make its goal a reality. For instance, it organizes amateur sports leagues?including dodge ball and basketball?complete with stats, jerseys, and trophies to encourage healthy competition. And it hosts youth basketball clinics for boys and girls. Away from the fields of play, however, Healthy Buffalo stays connected to the community by maintaining a website packed with free nutritional guidance, exercise tips, and mental health information. It also works with employers to create health and wellness programs for employees to help combat rising health costs.

For a lot of the staff, that means teaching basketball. Team CK's clutch of coaches run a robust, year-round basketball program. They hold training three days a week and focus on fundamental skills, sportsmanship, and teamwork. They train hard to give their athletes as much competitive edge as possible, while still teaching their students to play nice, according to the rules of the Nice League. "Out basketball program is for anyone who wishes to get great exercise while having fun and making friends," Alex reiterates. Of course, they've got a lot of square footage between their gym and fitness center, and not all of it is court space. They also teach a variety of other sports-specific programs, including swimming and wrestling. They focus on a variety of seasonal activities in both summer and winter camps, and even offer general fitness training through one-on-one sessions in their gym.
