Mayor Rahm Emanuel joined young basketball players and their families at the inaugural games of the Windy City Hoops basketball program on Saturday in Jackson Park.

Windy City Hoops is a basketball league for 13-18 year-olds in Chicago. The program provides an extra 3,200 registration slots for youths at 10 parks around the city.

The league runs from 7:00-10:00 p.m. on Fridays and 5:00-10:00 p.m. on Saturdays. Organizers say that the expanded hours should double the total number of hours of teen basketball programming for the Chicago Park District.
