BGCC Community Rallies Around Sports Program

Cars lined the streets as parents and neighborhood fans came out to support BGCC’s first-ever, competitive flag football teams.  Flag football is the first of many sports to be offered in BGCC’s newly launched athletic league, thanks to a strategic partnership with the Lindy Infante Foundation.  The foundation recently donated $250,000 to ensure that BGCC members have the opportunity to receive the necessary coaching and training to compete in high-level athletics. The teams are coached by Club staff with additional support from volunteers.  Both staff and players were overwhelmed by the cheering and energy that came from the sidelines.  “I was surprised by the number of parents and neighbors who came out to see the kids play,” said Steve Dunlap, Athletic Director for the league.   “I think it shows how supportive the community is of the program and how excited they are to see our kids engaged in team sports.”
