Each year YMCA’s across the Globe celebrate the YMCA World Challenge. This year World Challenge is all about coming together as a community and playing a game of Basketball.

RecWest Braybrook is pleased to announce we will kick off the celebrations on May 31st10.30-1pm to launch the event for our other YMCA’s across the state!

Did you know basketball is special to the YMCA, in fact back in 1891 YMCA employee James Naismith invented the game as a way to empower a group of disengaged students.

This year on World Challenge Day we intend to celebrate our history and aim to use the power of Basketball to bring our communities together, just like James Naismith.

We intend to launch World Challenge 2017 with a bang, and in the spotlight will be our All Abilities basketball team. You are invited to take part, shoot some hoops and cheer loud! The event will also consist of awesome entertainment, sweet DJ tunes, half game competitions and prizes and perhaps a celebrity appearance!

Let’s play some ball!
