“Playing basketball at the Club was a huge part of my childhood and, to this day, I believe that they play an integral role in shaping the lives of kids all across the country,” states pro basketball player Robbie Hummel.
"Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County played a huge part of me falling in love with the game of basketball at a young age. The basketball leagues I played in were always fun and competitive. If any young kids in the area are in interested in the game of basketball, they should get involved with Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County," reiterates Zack Novak, Chesterton resident and basketball player for University of Michigan.
Robbie Hummel and Zack Novak are two Club alumni that benefitted from our Club Basketball League! Club leagues, whether basketball, soccer, or flag football, are a great way for youth to stay fit, meet friends, and learn the fundamentals of sports. League registration for our fall sports open soon!
