The city of Salisbury will partner with the Bobby Jackson Summer Basketball League to provide a positive summer opportunity for local youth.
The program, offered to boys and girls sixth grade through high school, provides opportunities to improve basketball skills, receive coaching on career and educational decisions, acquire social etiquette and develop character traits and positive social interaction.Livingstone College, Salisbury High School and Hall Gym will provide the sites for the seven-week youth league, held during June and July.
The league will have a graduation banquet July 16. “The Bobby Jackson League is a strong match to the community action agenda which was established through citizen feedback provided at the Salisbury-Rowan United Summit during June 2007,” Salisbury Mayor Susan Kluttz said.
“The program incorporates a number of the eight areas identified, including recreation, mentoring and tutoring, faith community involvement and community education and awareness. The city is proud to partner with this league, which not only provides a positive opportunity for youth, but also instills confidence and a sense of fair play into our future leaders of tomorrow.”

The league still has openings with scholarship opportunities available. Interested individuals may contact Coach Andrew Mitchell at andrewmitchell55@carolina.rr.com or call 704-267-1122 or 980-234-8044 for more information.
