Experiencing Growth: YMCA’s sports participation increases

January 13, 2011

From last year’s winter sports to this year’s, participation in both basketball and indoor soccer has grown. This is especially true for basketball.
“I’ve only been here a year,” said Paxton Tallent, Sports Director at the Shuford YMCA. “I started at the midpoint of basketball season last year. We maybe had 50 kids. We are up 60 kids. We are up a couple in indoor soccer as well.”

That shouldn't be for long though. By next week, players may see a slew of competition to make up for time lost during this entire week.

Some coaches already had a plan for their athletes during the breaks given due to winter weather.

N-C girl's basketball coach Jonathan Tharpe said he feels these breaks as a beneficial opportunity for his team.
