Join us for the first "MYC Youth Got Game" Sports Night and Training Combine on Friday, November 16th from 6:30-9:00 PM at the Milford Youth Center! This event will celebrate the importance of physical activity and sports! The first event will include speeches from athletes, a Training Combine, raffles and numerous sports games to participate in! Elena Pirozhkova, USA Olympic Wrestler, will be attending the event and speaking before the competition starts! Elena will be joined by local athletes, Jorge Rivera (UFC Fighter) and Liane Blyn (Powerlifting National and World Champion).  The first 50 participants to sign up for the Training Combine, run by staff from Athletic Based Training, will receive a free t-shirt! Youth will be able to participate in four different age categories in the combine. It will be $5 per person to attend this event!

The Milford Youth Center and JAG Youth Council were awarded a grant last June, after youth began to recognize that many of their peers at the MYC are unable to afford the cost of school sports. The JAG Youth Council wanted to offer an alternative source of exercise and a resource through which young people can develop athletic skills. By coordinating seasonal sporting events in which young people pay a small fee to participate, this team will create a scholarship program to fund one male and one female per season to play the sport of his/her choice and/or create an annual scholarship to a graduating senior who has utilized the Youth Center. Moreover, the events, which will include sports relevant to each season, will offer young people at the Milford Youth Center a safe environment to hone their individual talents, learn, and play.

This event was made possible by the Milford Rotary Club and United Way of Tri-County's Youth Venture Program!

We are looking for individual and sports teams to volunteers at this event. Please contact the Milford Youth Center if you would like to help out at 508-473-1756 or milfordyouthcenter@comcast.net
