YES Lindsley Sweeps Basketball League

Each year, Youth Encouragement Services (YES) hosts a winter Basketball League from December – May. The purpose of the league is to train young men and women in the game of basketball within a Christian environment. This demands a higher degree of sportsmanship than is normally found with other leagues.

This year, one group among (4) different teams was able to sweep the entire championship and win in every division. The Cougars of the YES Lindsley Center in downtown Nashville took home four championship trophies on last Saturday for the first time in this center’s history.

The director of the YES Lindsley Center, Daryl Elliott, has led the after-school programming and its basketball league for the past 20 years. He has impacted the lives of thousands of children along the way, but this is a memory to be etched in his heart and mind forever. For him, he sees these children have to face so many losses in life everyday growing up in the limits of J.C. Napier housing. So to see this win for them is priceless to Mr. Elliott!

Way to go, Cougars!!
