For more than 30 years, Craig Raucher has directed the Brooklyn/Staten Island Athletic League. This organization provides opportunities for indoor basketball without the combative atmosphere of playground and schoolyard, as well as long stretches of play with players of similar skill levels. Craig Raucher ensures that those interested in playing basketball with a highly skilled group of former college and high school athletes can play for three hours at a time in a clean, well-lit venue year-round.

Every Wednesday from 7 to 10 p.m. and every Saturday from 8 to 11 a.m., the league meets, with each member typically playing about eight games during this period. The winning team takes on the next challenger each time. The style of play tends toward classic basketball, using tactics such as boxing out and give-and-go, which have become less popular over time. The league has drawn attention from local media for its distinctive tactics, competitive spirit, and longevity.
