Boys & Girls Clubs of Lanier offers sports programs for boys and girls between the ages of 6 and 14. Children must be 6 years old by August 1 to participate in our sports leagues. Regardless of a child’s athletic ability, our programs give all kids the opportunity to learn new skills, develop self-esteem, understand teamwork and build leadership skills. We emphasize having fun and promote full participation for every youth. Coaches and spectators are encouraged to demonstrate good sportsmanship and positive support for all players and officials.
