Featured Story of the Month

"I love playing basketball because it helps you practice aiming. I love playing basketball because I love meeting new people. Other things I like about playing basketball are that it is a very fun sport and I like doing tricks with the balls. Some of the tricks I do are make the ball go around my back and go through my legs. I like to play at the Bryan YMCA because there are lots of sports you can play, and it’s a very fun place. People clap for other people, and I like that because it’s encouraging people to do more. I like basketball because when you meet new coaches, you get to know new things. I like playing basketball because as you get older, you get to harder levels. I like doing it because I love when you see your friends. I hope in the future I will become a professional basketball player. Basketball is awesome!" - Eva
