LYNCHBURG, Virginia. – The Virginia Commonwealth Games will take place again this year with at least seven different sporting events at Liberty University in Lynchburg.
A sports shop ensures that children get involved. Dick’s Sporting Goods sponsors three teams to make sure they have everything they need to compete, including a Lynchburg travel basketball team.
The coaches told us that if it hadn’t been for the support, the kids might not have a chance to play this weekend.
“It’s really exciting for the team here in Lynchburg, but more exciting for the kids. They get the chance to do something that will be remembered for a lifetime. We just hope they bring the gold home, ”said Brent DiGiacomo, community marketing manager at Dick’s Sporting Goods.
The team had their first game on Friday at two and will play the rest of the weekend.
