JAYHAWKS YOUTH ASSOCIATION
Jayhawks Youth Association
The Jayhawks Youth Association was established by Andre Crews. Andre is a member of the Jayhawks (a basketball team). The Jayhawks celebrated their 40th Anniversary in 2015. Since he has been a Jayhawk for most of his life he decided to name the youth organization after the Jayhawks. The Jayhawks Youth Association was established in 2000.
The Kingsessing Young Kings - Father and Son Boot Camp - This new program is held on Sundays at Kingsessing Recreation Center. We started this program in 2014. Our second year has been very successful. We have parents that are Postal Workers, Police Officers and Educators.
ETIBL (Eggie Taylor Ivan Brown League
ETIBL is our basketball organization. We named the league after two very important members of the Jayhawks. Mr. Edward (Eggie) Taylor and Mr. Ivan "Pick" Brown. These two gentlemen, their hardwork and the dedication to children and the game of basketball are what keep us going when we think we can't do another thing.
The future - ages 5, 6, 7 and 8
