Reading Challenge

Books, books, and more books! Here at the GYF we love to encourage our youth players to read more. The education room started the "Read to Lead" program which provides incentives (cool prizes!) to all of the players if they read books from the Foundation library, read online, read at school, and more. Check out the Read to Lead brochure or talk to Coach Wendy for more info!
