Welcome to the official website of Promoting Progress for Youth Inc. We have been apart of the East Orange Community for the past 49 years. We  are a non-profit organization and our primary goal is to provide children, between the ages of 7-14, the fundamentals, rules, regulations, sportsmanship and the competitive edge in sports. In addition to learning sports, it is important to P.P.Y. that each participant understands  that academics and personal growth comes first.


Promoting Progress for Youth, Inc. participates in two sports, Football and Basketball. Our football team competes as the East Orange Panthers in the Garden State American Youth Football League. Our Basketball teams compete as the PPY Panthers in various leagues and tournaments throughout the area. We also have a basketball skills academy that runs throughout the winter, spring, and early summer. We look forward to a Great 2017-2018 season and want to THANK YOU in advance for allowing our organization the privelege of sharing this wonderful experience with your child.
