The National Sports Center has an opportunity for BYGB families to help with grounds cleanup during the USA Cup on Thursday 7/18 from 6-8pm. We are looking for 20 people (a mix of adults and kids) for grounds cleanup. All the materials you might need (gloves, bags, etc.) will be provided for you by the NSC.
The NSC will donate $500 to Blaine Youth Girls Basketball as a part of this clean up project. All you have to do is sign up, show up, clean up, and we will earn our donation!
This money will go towards continued access to the NSC basketball courts during our upcoming season and towards purchasing new equipment for the girls in our program to use.
