The Heroes Basketball League has been serving kids in Maspeth, Middle Village, Elmhurst, and neighboring Queens neighborhoods every spring since 1990.
The league consists of 30 teams, ages 7-17, and games are played on weekdays at Frontera and Crowley Parks.
This year, the league consisted of teams from Martin Luther School, Maspeth High School, McClancy High School, Metro High School, Grover Cleveland High School, Francis Lewis High School, as well as elementary school parishes, such as St. Stan’s, Our Lady of Hope, St. Margaret’s, St. Adalbert’s, and more!
The atmosphere is family friendly, and kids learn valuable skills, such as teamwork, competitiveness, and hard work.
Maspeth Federal Savings Bank (MFS) has been serving the Maspeth and surrounding Queens communities since 1947. MFS is known for their commitment to supporting community businesses and residents by hosting and sponsoring events, donating funds to schools, and the personal attention that they give to their banking clients.
For the 3rd year in a row, MFS has sponsored Heroes Basketball.
Their sponsorship has allowed the league to keep a very low entry fee for families in the community.
MFS also gifted custom basketballs to the winners of each division.
“Running a 30 team league takes a lot of work, but the good times and memories that the league has brought families makes it all worth it,” said a Heroes league representative.
Heroes game results & high scorers are published in the Queens Ledger Newspaper each week, as well as the league’s Instagram page.
Maspeth Federal staffers are proud members of various charitable organizations, such as The Maspeth Chamber of Commerce, American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life in Middle Village, Veterans Memorial Day Parade, and more… all helping to make our neighborhoods better for our children, families and neighbors.
“Maspeth Federal is the bank that ‘Treats you like Family’, and we do this because we live in the communities we serve – we are your neighbors, associates, customers and friends,” said Bank President & CEO, Tom Rudzewick.
“We believe that by giving back we’re helping our communities remain healthy and strong,” Rudzewick added.
Maspeth Federal’s main office is located at 56-18 69th Street in Maspeth, and their phone number is (718) 335-1300. MFS also has branches in Ridgewood, Forest Hills, Rego Park, Fresh Meadows, and New Hyde Park.
