FUSSA, TOKYO, JAPAN – March 15, 2017 – Yokota Air Base Youth Programs (YP) has been selected by Boys & Girls Club of America (BGCA) to be the recipient of a $2,000 grant, sponsored by Buffalo Wild Wings. The grant will go towards the implementation of YP ALL STAR Sports Programs including flag football.
Starting June 5, YP will kick off an eight week summer football program designed to teach the fundamentals of catching, throwing, running, and creating an overall healthy lifestyle. Open to ages 5-18, the grant-funded summer football program will offer Yokota’s youth an opportunity to learn from six trained coaches during weekly scheduled practices and games. A minimum of 100 participants are needed to fulfill the grant’s requirements, advance registration is highly recommended.
“Thanks to Buffalo Wild Wings and Boys & Girls Club of America, this grant will help keep our kids actively engaged in physically and mentally positive activities during the summer months.

Additionally, BGCA will provide 100 flag football jerseys, 50 flag belts, scoreboards, Coaches Training Program access, and unlimited technical assistance to ensure the summer program’s success. “This is the first time Youth Programs ever received a grant of this size and we are so excited to host this inaugural summer sports program for our youth,” said Richardson.
