History of our Program
There has been a youth basketball program in Portage since the late 80's, when Hugh Roberts, from Randolph, came and spoke to the Portage Kiwanis Club. He helped us develop a program here in Portage very selflessly. With the support of the Kiwanis Club, Pastor Steve Corbett led the program for many years. The program was passed onto C. Martin Gavinski in the fall of 1999 and continued to be organized under the Portage Youth Sports program. In the fall of 2006, Portage Youth Basketball was formed and works within the Greater Portage Youth Education Foundation.
An opportunity for all children and their parents to respectfully participate in a program that emphasizes skill development while maintaining a focus on the joy of sports and competition.
As we continue our journey using this website to enhance communication for the program, we would like to thank Brenda May from New Century Designers, Inc. Her efforts have gone up and beyond to make this the best ever!
