The YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee (the Y) has partnered with the Milwaukee Fatherhood Initiative (MFI) and former Milwaukee Bucks All-Star Sidney Moncrief to launch a 30+ Men’s Basketball League at the Parklawn YMCA that is dedicated to promoting and celebrating responsible fatherhood.
Through a variety of curriculum- based activities, designed specifically for the Milwaukee Fatherhood Initiative and the Y by 5-time NBA All-Star Sidney Moncrief, the primary goal of the league is to increase the number of children with involved, responsible and committed fathers (and/or father-figures) in their lives.
The league is seeking men 30 years of age and older who are looking to fulfill their role as fathers, or in special cases have a desire to strengthen the existing relationship with their own father. Value-based, skill-building opportunities will be provided to players that are designed to help them grow as men and as parents. Participants will be exposed to an evidence-based curriculum that will enhance existing knowledge, create new opportunities for learning and increase their overall understanding of the father/child relationship.
The league will be offered on Sundays from 1-5 p.m. beginning November 6 and running through January 29 at the Parklawn YMCA, located at 4340 N. 46th Street in Milwaukee. The cost is $450 per team and requires a minimum of eight team members and a maximum of 12.
