YMCA for Jefferson county

The designated spot for this center is the gym at the old high school. Organizers say the facility is the ideal place for kids to shoot a little hoop.

They're also hoping this "Tiger territory" will become the perfect territory for the entire community.

Eugene Hall says, "What this program would provide is not only for physical activity and wellness program, but also for career development and career improvement, self esteem programs for young kids, we certainly can use that."

Organizers are hoping to get funding from the community to make this dream a reality. They're also waiting for the green light from the school board. If approved the new YMCA should be open by October of 2006.
