The Boys & Girls Club Family Center introduced the Black Diamonds Double Dutch program through volunteer support provided by Ms. Shirley Gardner.
Shirley came to us last year with hope and desire to teach Double Dutch to both male and female Family Center members. To date, she has worked with approximately twelve club members teaching them the mental toughness and physical skills needed in order to be a successful Black Diamond Double Dutch competitor.
So far these young ladies have participated in one Double Dutch competition which took place this past February in Brooklyn, New York. Although this was their first competition, in true Boys & Girls Club Family Center fashion and determined attitude, the third and sixth grade groups placed “Third”.
We are very pleased to have Shirley here to introduce and reinforce the importance of health and fitness, teamwork and collaboration.
