The return of Friday Night Basketball

Waynesboro Y executive director Jeff Fife hoped to get 35-40 kids out to the Y on Friday nights at the start of Friday Night Basketball in 2008.

“It’s taken on a life of its own,” said Fife, getting ready for the relaunch of Friday Night Basketball this coming Friday night, Oct. 1, from 9 p.m. to midnight.

Friday Night Basketball is a regular feature on the schedule at the Y in the fall, winter and spring months, and usually brings in around 135 teens.

The venture is a partnership involving the Y and several community organizations, including the Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge, which provides grant funding toward staff time, and the Waynesboro Police Department, which provides manpower for security.
