Youth sports on the move

The Robins Youth Center has partnered with the Warner Robins and Perry recreation departments and the Central Georgia Soccer Association to offer military children more opportunities for sports.

The first program that will be enhanced through participation in the local community will be basketball. Participants will register directly at each rec department, while Robins volunteers will have the opportunity to continue their outreach as well.

The initiative is part of public-public and public-private partnerships in development since early 2013. Community partnerships such as this one allow the base, businesses and local governments to reduce operating and service costs. 

The youth sports program will allow children to play with or against their peers in the community as well as decrease costs. 

In addition to basketball, additional opportunities will include tee ball, baseball, softball, tackle football, cheerleading, soccer, volleyball and tennis.
