Interest and enthusiasm are the only criteria for playing. » Positive Coaching - Encouragement of player effort provides for greater enjoyment by the players and ultimately leads to better-skilled and better-motivated players. » Good Sportsmanship - We strive to create a positive environment based on mutual respect rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude, and our program is designed to instill good sportsmanship in every facet of AYSO.

BROOKLYN WING TZUN KUNG FU SCHOOL
Our Mission: To Teach the System Wing Tzun and it's Philosophy as a way of life. WT grows out of the Taoist tradition in Chinese Philosophy - "Tao" means " The Way." It signifies life's eternal movement of growing, blooming, fading away, and never-ending renewal. To achieve his unity with the Tao, man must become as the Tao: spontaneous, open, simple, and flexible - not hard and arrogant. When using Wing Tzun in self-defense or applying its principles in every day life, one becomes like a river flowing to the sea. Even if a mountain obstructs the river's flow it will not be stopped It will reach its goal naturally, unavoidably, while overcoming all obstacles on the way.

CHOCOLATE CHIP CHAMBER MUSIC
Chocolate Chip Chamber Music made its debut as a children’s chamber music series in May 2006. Located in the heart of Park Slope, Brooklyn, the series features professional musicians in engaging and interactive mini-concerts designed for two to six year olds. The concerts are comprised of an opening chocolate chip cookie theme song “sing-along,” and a number of very brief musical selections performed by the musicians. “Baker Bobbie” serves as the emcee and mascot, and often finds her way out of a perplexing problem with the help of the audience and the musicians. Each piece of music is introduced in such a way as to involve the listeners fully – from clapping games to movement and acting. Programs are typically tied to a particular theme such as dance or storytelling, so as to further educate and inspire children and parents. Performances end with instrument demonstrations – a hands-on experience for curious preschoolers, and a chocolate chip cookie for all in attendance.

LESBIAN HERSTORY ARCHIVES
Our Mission and Principles From the beginning the Archives' founders developed a statement of purpose and a set of principles to guide the development of the collection. We adhere to these purposes and principles today. Statement of Purpose: The Lesbian Herstory Archives exists to gather and preserve records of Lesbian lives and activities so that future generations will have ready access to materials relevant to their lives. The process of gathering this material will uncover and collect our herstory denied to us previously by patriarchal historians in the interests of the culture which they serve. We will be able to analyze and reevaluate the Lesbian experience; we also hope the existence of the Archives will encourage Lesbians to record their experiences in order to formulate our living herstory. We will collect and preserve any materials that are relevant to the lives and experiences of Lesbians: books, magazine, journals, news clippings (from establishment, Feminist or lesbian media), bibliographies, photos, historical information, tapes, films, diaries, oral histories, poetry and prose, biographies, autobiographies, notices of events, posters, graphics and other memorabilia.

SPOKE THE HUB
Based in Brooklyn since 1979, Elise Long and Spoke the Hub Dancing have been hailed by the local press and public as "neighborhood treasures" and "cultural pioneers" creating the Living Room Performance Space on 9th Street (1980 - 84); the Gowanus Arts Exchange on Douglass Street (founded in 1985, relocated and renamed the Brooklyn Arts Exchange/BAX, still active as a separate organization); and the Spoke the Hub Re:Creation Center on Union Street (1995- present). The Gowanus Arts Building, a derelict soap factory bought and renovated in 1985 by Long with partners David Wolfe, Marc Eichen, Mary Ann Banerji and Jonathan Stewart, was the original home of Gowanus Arts Exchange. Now a 15,000 square foot multi-dimensional artists "habitat" , the Gowanus Arts Building offers affordable workspace to over a dozen performance, visual, musical, architectural, and multi-media artists, including Spoke the Hub. Spoke the Hub's mission is to nurture both individual and community health and happiness through providing the general public with affordable creative arts study, contemplation and practice opportunities of the highest caliber.

ST. FRANCIS XAVIER CHURCH
Our first pastor, Reverend David J. Hickey celebrated the first Mass of St. Francis Xavier of the Indies on September 19, 1886. The parish was named at the request of Father Hickey for his alma mater, St. Francis Xavier College in New York City. Our current church building was dedicated on May 15, 1904. With over a thousand parishioners present, Monsignor David Hickey preached, “Amidst all the material work that has been accomplished, your spiritual interests and those of your children have not been neglected, and this grand church would be in vain if it were not a means to make our spiritual lives better and more beautiful…Your temple will preach a sermon to the passerby. Let your lives preach a sermon by example to all with whom you mingle.” Our parish has grown much in the years since the first mass of the parish and the dedication of our church, but we pray our hearts and lives continue to serve as a blessing to each other and to our neighborhood.
