BGCRE Membership Fee
by posted 09/09/2013

Beginning August 1, 2013 the Boys & Girls Club of Redding-Easton (Club) will be implementing an annual club membership fee of $35 per participant.  Payment of the fee will be required prior to registering your son or daughter for any sport/program which runs between August 1, 2013 - July 31, 2014.

The decision to introduce an annual membership fee comes after giving serious consideration to improving the operation of the Club and the impact it has on its members. We are excited to report that the number of Club programs and participants are at an all-time high and continuing to expand. An annual membership fee is a more transparent way to cover some, but not all, of our increased cost and is also a common practice among other Boys & Girls Clubs.

An annual membership fee will also enable us to offer other free or low cost programs and events for Club members and the community at large without the need to assess extra fees at every turn. Certain events and activities that we have charged for separately in the past (such as the annual Spring Barbeque) will now be free to members. Please keep an eye out for more information regarding these programs.
If you have any questions, please contact the club at 203-938-3166. We thank all our members for supporting our efforts and look forward to another successful year!

Don't put your stick down!
posted 03/14/2013

WALL BALL is one of the best things you can do to improve catching, throwing, and shooting. All you need is a wall, your stick, and a ball.


  • Accuracy
  • Stick Skills
  • Passing
  • Shooting
  • Catching
  • Dodging
  • Conditioning
  • Hand Eye Coordination


  • Wrists
  • Forearms
  • Body Trunk
  • Core
  • Shoulders
  • Legs

For Best Results:

  1. Find a flat brick or concrete wall at least 10 feet high, the longer the better. You have permission to use the big outside wall of the gym at Barlow, the one that faces the septic field.
  2. Every drill that you do — do it with both hands.
  3. Stand 5-7 yards away from the wall.
  4. Practice this routine at least 4-5 times per week.
  5. Each practice session should be at least 20 minutes. If you finish all drills in less than 20 minutes, repeat starting with the drill that challenged you the most.
  6. Use your ipod!
  7. Have fun!

Wall Ball Drills:

  1. Quick Stick with no cradle.  (50 right, 50 left.)
  2. One hand Quick Stick, no cradle. (50 right, 50 left.)
  3. Quick Stick, change hands each time you throw the ball while the ball is in the air, no cradle. (50 right, 50 left.)
  4. Both hand catch and cradle, with one quick cradle. (50 right, 50 left.)
  5. One hand catch and cradle, with one quick cradle. (50 right, 50 left.)
  6. Face Dodge: Catch, face dodge, throw. (50 right, 50 left.)
  7. Split Dodge: Throw right, catch right. Split dodge to left hand, throw left, catch left. Split back to right hand.  (50 right, 50 left.)
  8. Cross handed, weak side. (50 right, 50 left.) “Cross handed” means stick in right hand on the left side of body, or stick in left hand on right side of body. One quick cradle each time.
  9. Behind the back. (50 right, 50 left).
  10. Pass and Catch on the move, side to side.  (Go for 30 seconds, rest for 30 seconds, repeat 3 times.)
