It’s Time To Hit the Court!
We may be in football season but it’s not too early to start thinking about shooting some hoops on the Basketball court. Teams are forming now at the Greensboro & Reidsville area YMCAs with practices starting in November. Cheerleading is also available at the Hayes-Taylor & Reidsville locations. At the YMCA, Youth Sports promote healthy kids, families and communities because when kids play sports they build confidence, discover their personal best, and have fun as part of a team. The YMCA offers sports programs year-round for kids aged 3-18. Visit the Bryan, Spears, Ragsdale, Reidsville or Hayes-Taylor YMCA locations or visit YMCAGreensboro.org for more information and get ready to hit the court! The sign-up deadline is October 26th for ages 3-10 and Nov. 27th ages 11 & up. Deadline for the Reidsville YMCA is Oct. 21st.

Be A Boy Scout!
Why is Boy Scouts important to our family? “Scouting is fun! The program provides quality time for our family and reinforces the values we are teaching our children: how to be helpful and courteous to others. Through Scouting, our son David has grown into a kind young person who puts others first. He loves teaching younger Scouts how to cook, camp, and conduct science experiments. David’s self-confidence has grown! Scouting has provided exciting opportunities for him and he’s made new friends.” – Lisa, Scouting parent in Greensboro
