CHICAGO (WLS) -- A South Side church is giving the city's youth a safe environment to play sports in as part of an effort to help curb violence.

The "Hoops for Peace" 5-on-5 basketball tournament was held Saturday afternoon at the ark of Saint Sabina Church.

The so-called "Safe Saturdays" are hosted by Father Michael Pfleger, giving children a safe place to play sports and helps keep them off the streets.
