Naismith,” said Dr. James Easley, the Community Center’s Director. “He developed the game 26 years after The Salvation Army was founded in London, England in 1891. Naismith believed that the game of basketball was a God given vision that he designed as an evangelism tool with the purpose of sharing the love of Jesus with children.” According to Easley, “Naismith dedicated his entire life educating students in Spirit, Mind and Body for leadership and service to others.”

The upcoming session is scheduled for April 19 to June 21 and is offered without charge.
