The programs are free for the youth, ages 6-15, of the Cartersville / Bartow County Community.  Our programs began in 1990 with only 150 participants and have grown to over 1,000 participants.

Mandatory education and social intervention sessions precede all athletic activities.  

All participants will receive free nutritious lunches and snacks provided by Cartersville City Schools.  

Participants must wear athletic shoes--no flip flops. Girls must wear shorts, t-shirts or appropriate tanks--no halter tops, strapless tops or dresses.  At the end of the program, participants will receive a program T-shirt. 

We design our programs to enhance confidence and self- esteem; and to help develop coordination, concentration and listening skills. Youth will also learn the importance of education, teamwork and good sportsmanship.  

Our purpose  is to have a positive influence on all youth who participate in our programs.  We want every experience with us to be fun, exciting, adventurous and educational.  

So, join us!  Imagine, discover and experience our exciting programs.
