Amid its 25,000 square feet of climate-controlled indoor turf, Long Island Sports Complex treats up to 15 birthday celebrants to one hour of motion-based merriment, followed by a half-hour of pizza, cake, drinks, and party goods. The facility takes care of all the food, decorations and invitations, so parents can spend more time knitting the perfect birthday gift or reanimating it during an electrical storm. Sports-party revelers get to release excess energy with their choice of soccer, baseball, softball, football, or lacrosse without the outdoor inconveniences of grass stains or slingshotted acorns from territorial squirrels. Two to four sport-savvy supervisors will be on hand to make sure that everyone has a safe time.

In addition to general recreational play, day-camp sessions and birthday party packages allow children to let loose and engage in energetic matches. Famished athletes can replenish their energy at the on-site restaurant, Saverio?s Bistro, which serves up piping-hot brick-oven pizzas, paninis, and pastas.

During the Big Apple Beatdown, an all-day roller-derby tournament hosted by the New York Shock Exchange, spectators arrive to the rink with chairs under their arms to watch six notable MRDA teams battle for the National Champion title. Bouts begin at 10 a.m. with the Dallas Deception taking on the Magic City Misfits in a storm of skates, helmets, and trampled 10-gallon hats. Other teams battling for supremacy include the St. Louis GateKeepers, Puget Sound Derby Outcasts, and Pioneer Valley Dirty Dozen. A special women’s game will also be held featuring the Long Island Roller Rebels taking on the Jersey Shore Roller Girls. The championship bout commences at 7:30 p.m., and the day ends with a presentation of medals at 9:15 p.m., where one team is deemed the victor. Matches occur on two separate tracks, allowing smooth transitions between bouts and enough time for padded pros to finish a game of Connect the Bruises.

During water breaks when young ballers are relacing their high-tops on the edges of the gym, the coaching staff at Basketball Stars of NY might take a break to goof around on the court; but, for them—former NCAA Division I athletes who’ve spent time in professional leagues throughout the world—goofing around translates to throwing down a vicious tomahawk dunk, effortlessly splashing three-balls through the rim from behind the arc or subtly raising the rims during practice so players think that they're shrinking. No matter the act, these feats typically snag boys' and girls' attention during their private lessons, camps, or weekend programs or clinics. Progamming director and coach David Brown says the coaches' athletic prowess and physicality helps players focus, drawing a clear path between the hard work of practice drills to the payoff of a power dunk. In small groups split by age, skill, and position, coaches instill the value of fundamentals such as ball handling and rebounding. They also break the bad habits of youth, steering players away from the tendency to shoot nothing but threes, dribble with their head down, and fade away on simple 10-foot jumpers.
