This was a night filled with not only scoring baskets, but working to strengthen our community. Shane Quigley, who is Glenwood Park YMCA’s Program Director, is working hard to build this program to more than just a pickup game of basketball once a month or every other week, they would eventually like to travel with the kids to continue to grow their basketball skills. These teens come to the Y every day after school to practice their skills and have a lot of talent. The teens were eager to see how their hard work has paid off by having the opportunity to play other teams in the area. Shane Quigley states, “We hope that the teens learn good sportsmanship, teamwork and how to work hard”. Even though this is just the first of many games to happen, the teens that come to the Y are proud of the hard work and practice they put in everyday and were excited to see a victory over the Boys and Girls Club in Jamestown.
HUGE thank you to all the volunteers that have helped make this event possible to those at the Glenwood Park Family YMCA.
