The ‘Greenbelt Gators’ (formerly Greenbelt Raiders) is a Prince George’s County Boys Girls Club (PGCBGC) 501(c)(3) organization. We have maintained a strong consistent program that offers various sports. Our members are encouraged to try multiple sports at a lower cost but can opt to participate in one. Members can be beginners and we do have some teams that are highly competitive. We are proud of our Champions in our multiple sports. We are much prouder of our commitment to the youths and their families. If we never won a championship in any sport, but mentored and helped increase the health and confidence of our youth, we would claim victory every year. So, as President, I am pleased to say that we can claim victory. It is also nice that our youths have experienced yearly championships on a national and local level. We welcome new members and families. We welcome anyone who wishes to contribute to our club by coaching, donations, viewership (with cheering), etc. So come out and witness the Greenbelt pride.
