Good Sportsmanship Promoted at Youth Hoops

The youth sports league provides a foundation for camaraderie and a safe place to make friends while enjoying the sport of basketball.

Friendship and good sportsmanship are two ideals that the participants of the Lejeune-New River Youth Sports basketball league strive to achieve. This year’s basketball season is the example of these two themes.

The Dream Team from the 10-12 year-old age group have an undefeated record this year of 8-0, but what is really important are the lessons taught to the kids on and off the court. Drilling the shot from the free-throw line or making the lay-up helps build pride, but there is a bigger picture to be recognized.
