BASKETBALL

YMCA stands for Young Men’s Christian Association. They have been maintained since its foundation in London in 1844.

 

It was founded by George Williams with a group of young people to recover, in times of the English industrial revolution, the importance of maintaining a balance between the three essential aspects of the human being: body, mind and spirit.

 

Based on principles of Christian inspiration, it currently has a marked ecumenical character, being open to people of all faiths and beliefs.
