Sports Night for Youth at White Plains Library, March 19th

All youth, ages 8 through18 years old, are invited to attend a special Sports Night at White Plains Library, located at 100 Martine Avenue on Tuesday, March 19th from 6:00 - 8:30 p.m.

Participating in sports offers many benefits outside of the courts and fields. Sports helps young athletes learn important skills for life-long success. Come and listen to local fathers and grandpas share stories of the opportunities sports gave them, lessons learned through their wins and losses, and the role sports continues to play in their lives.

Featured speakers include Jim Morgan, who will discuss his years as a basketball All-American at Yale University and his later years as a basketball coach; Daymon Yizar, who overcame injuries to become a starter for the Wagner College Seahawks; and Peter Woods, a former professional boxer, who will share his experiences inside and outside of the ring.
