Paris Boys & Girls Club fall sports registration for football and cheer is currently open for grades 3rd – 6th. Parents can register for football and cheer on the Paris Boys & Club Facebook page or the Club website at www.bgcdiamondhills.org/sports.

According to BGC Director Elaina Damante, due to the COVID-19 virus, the Club does not currently have a date on when registrations will be closed.

“If we have enough participants interested in soccer, we will consider doing fall soccer.”

Interest forms for fall soccer can be found on the Paris Boys & Club Facebook page. Soccer is for children ages 5 – 18.

Sports fees are $30 per player for each sport. Scholarships are available on a need basis.

The $30 sports fee for football includes a game jersey and pants; cheer includes uniform and pom-poms and soccer registration fees include a jersey.

Damante said that youth sports are essential even though the games will look different this year because of the uncertainty due to COVID.

“Not only do they keep children active, sports teach them so many valuable lessons, including teamwork, responsibility, and perseverance.”

The staff at the BGC abides by all of the Governor’s orders and the AAA's recommendations.
