The PSAL offers over 40 varsity and JV team sports. Check them out below:
Approximately 20,800 NYC public high school students attend a school with no PSAL teams. 83.5% of these students are Black or Latino.
Black and Latino students are more than twice as likely as students of other races to attend a New York City public high school offering no PSAL team opportunities whatsoever
On average, a Black or Latino student in New York City’s public high schools attends a school with nearly ten fewer teams than students of other races.
High schools with the lowest percentage of Black and Latino students offer the most teams in the school system. Students in schools with 0–10% Black and Latino enrollment have, on average, 42 PSAL teams available to them.
By contrast, New York City’s most segregated schools, with 95−100% Black and Latino enrollment, have only seven PSAL teams on average.
