In partnership with Nike, DYCD launched a citywide basketball league in 2007. The league was created in response to the lack of structured, engaging recreational opportunities for middle school-aged girls throughout New York City, and has since grown to provide co-ed developmental programming for thousands of middle school students each year. In addition to promoting fitness and teamwork through sports, the league fosters youth leadership through community service and civic engagement opportunities. DYCD/Nike Zoom League tournaments and Zoom Academy skills clinics have been held at venues including Madison Square Garden, Basketball City, and Long Island University.
