PlayJC & JCHS Host Kick-Off for YMCA Basketball

On Thursday, November 21, PlayJC teamed up with the Junction City High School basketball coaches to host a kick-off event for the local 1st and 2nd grade YMCA basketball program. Coaches Nick Perez and Tim Testa volunteered time in the first practice of their seasons to provide an opportunity for mentorship between the high school teams and the younger players.
YMCA players learned about the importance of respecting their teammates and coaches, making good grades, and being kind. They also ran through some drills alongside the Blue Jays and Lady Jays players.
PlayJC looks forward to continuing this program with the second group of YMCA basketball teams in January, as well as similar collaborations between JCHS teams and local sports programs.
