Boys & Girls Clubs sports programs allow youth to participate in organized leagues under the direction of professional coaches at little to no cost. Not only is it great for team-building, sports programming is often the first Club experience for many kids who go on to enroll in educational, arts and careers programming as well.

Typically, thousands of Club members engage in Sports & Recreation programs at Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee annually, enjoying activities in a variety of sports, including basketball, baseball, soccer, football, and more. As we continue to navigate the current climate during the pandemic and plan to welcome our members to Club locations in greater numbers in the future, we look forward to one day enjoying those sports together again.
