    As part of Backyard Sports Cares’ Mission: Gaga 2018 initiative, BYSC, in conjunction with host families, will be donating a portable gaga pit to the Boys and Girls Club so they can enjoy the game all year-round.

    To get the kids formally introduced to gaga action, Backyard Sports Cares hosted a Gaga Day on Thursday, January 25th at the Mt. Vernon Boys and Girls Club.  More than 40 youngsters participated in a fun-filled activity of competitive dodging, fleeing, and jumping in gaga pits supplied by Scott Blumberg of Talon Athletics.

    Last November, Backyard Sports Cares launched an ambitious mission to bring kids from all socioeconomic backgrounds in Westchester together through gaga play. A dedicated team of BYSC’ stakeholders, advocates, parents, and volunteers are overseeing the development and ongoing program coordination of five new gaga pits in under-served areas of Westchester County by this spring.
