Friars Ron Walker Youth Sports

Ron Walker exemplified Friars Club’s values of respect, responsibility, leadership, and good sportsmanship. Therefore, the Youth Sports program is named after him.

We build character and promote values for over 700 boys and girls K-8th grades through organized sports. Our 70+ volunteers help mentor and teach the children of the Friars Club. The Friars children all come from varied socio-economic backgrounds and are coached in life skills and the fundamentals of basketball.
