OBGC was the first nonprofit youth sports organization in the State to receive Maryland Nonprofits' "Seal of Excellence" for nonprofit management. Those high standards are evident in all of OBGC's sports programs and gorgeous 118-acre Community Park. Kudos to the 800+screened and trained volunteers that manage OBGC and coach 7,000 children each year!!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
My children have developed both physically and emotionally through OBGC's sports programs and have learned the value of teamwork. OBGC's programs foster a sense of community for both parents and children.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Add more facilities, particularly a gymnasium, to ensure no children are turned away due to the shortage of rec space in the County.
