Dream Games


The Martin Luther King “Dream Games” are hosted and organized by Friends of West LA  with the help of the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks bringing youth from Recreation Centers throughout the City of Los Angeles to play basketball. The purpose of the “Dream Games” is to recognize the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by building bridges between communities, promoting inclusion, and supporting the youth of Los Angeles.
 
Players between the ages of 7-15 are placed into diverse teams based on their age, play games of basketball together, receive gifts, enjoy free food, and other fun activities. Youth learn that differences in ethnic heritage, socioeconomics, and religious beliefs all disappear once the whistle blows, the game begins, and parents and fans cheer for all teams. For 11 years, the “Dream Games” has been hosted at the Westwood Recreation Center and draws hundreds of players and parents.

 

Below are some of the participating Recreation Centers who have participated in the Martin Luther King “Dream Games”:

– Cypress Park Recreation Center

– Martin Luther King Recreation Center

– Hubert Humphrey Recreation Center

– EXPO Center

– Mount Carmel Recreation Center

– Oakwood Recreation Center
