The YCQ (Yeshiva of Central Queens) Alumni Association is proud to announce that it is hosting its inaugural Alumni Basketball Game and Family Fun Day on Sunday, November 3, beginning at 11:00 a.m. It is hoped that this basketball game will become an annual event, generating much excitement among alumni who wish to renew relationships with both their elementary/middle school alma mater and former classmates/friends. This year’s event, as presently envisioned, will be limited to a single basketball game for alumni who are 22 years of age or older. If there is significant interest in registering for this game, a second and possibly even a third game that day will be added.

For this year’s alumni event, Dr. Moshe Kalaie (’98) and Solomon Michailow (’09) have been selected as team captains. These two YCQ graduates were standout players during their elementary school/high school years. Their responsibilities as captains will include interacting with alumni who are interested in registering to play in the game and assembling the two team rosters. There will be activities and musical entertainment for the children.

If you wish to register for the game, please send an email prior to Thursday, August 15, expressing both your interest in playing and the year that you graduated from YCQ to either of the two team captains as outlined below. Please be aware that there is no fee associated with playing in this game.

Alumni aged 22 through 28 should please contact Solomon Michailow at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
