Basketball Program

The Basketball Program at the Boys & Girls Club of Garfield is an enriching environment where young athletes develop discipline, coordination, and teamwork. The program is not just about learning the game; it’s a place where youth can grow, both in their athletic skills and in their capacity to work as part of a team. Our approach is to encourage each player to reach their full potential, emphasizing the importance of commitment, both in practice and in games, while upholding our Code of Conduct. This program is a perfect blend of sportsmanship, skill development, and personal growth.
