The city of Akron is bringing back a “midnight basketball league” as one possible solution to address the problem of youth violence.

“Youth violence is a serious public health issue in our city. It is a community problem and the city will not be able to solve it alone nor overnight,” said Mayor Dan Horrigan, who announced the new league during his state of the city address Wednesday afternoon.

The midnight league will actually run from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. at Mason Park Community Center starting in June and will last eight weeks. City leaders are hoping to expand it beyond the summer.

Details regarding signing up on-line will be revealed at a later date. The program will be open to young men ages 16 to 33
