About Us

The West Bank Athletic Club is a non-profit whose mission is to provide the youth of Cedar Riverside and the Twin Cities area with quality year-round programming for players aged 5 to 18. The West Bank Athletic Club strives to create leaders in the community by providing a safe, healthy environment for young athletes. It offers quality year-round; skill-based training sports programs to develop creative and confident team players. The organization looks to instill on the values of respect, fair play, responsibility, self-discipline, and the value of hard work through sports in all its participants.

 

Vision

The West Bank Athletic Club has a vision to develop the highest quality team players, athletes, leaders and community members.

 

Values

While children in the community may be doing well in school, they are not often recognized for being role models. WBAC creates opportunities for children to experience visible success in their community. Setting sports aside, WBAC strives to provide programs for underserved youth – after school education, with extracurriculars in math, science and reading. More than that, WBAC strives to be a resource creating new opportunities for youth.
