About Us

The Backcourt Club of Fergus Falls originated in the mid 1970’s with Norm Newell being the catalyst/organizer of the program. It predominantly was a Saturday program for boys and girls in grades 3 through 8 for a number of years.

Approximately 15 years ago, the club teamed with the YMCA to include boys and girls in Kindergarten, first and second grade which is called the “Mighty Mites” group.

Over the past several years additional programming including a summer skills academy, Monday night lights, Shot Club, involvement in the Underwood League and teaming with the varsity coaches on their summer camps for boys and girls have afforded our youth participants year-round opportunities to stay active and at the same time participate in other activities.

Our Saturday Program typically has 250 to 300 participants.
