Oregon Community Bank and Oregon Youth Basketball are proud to announce a new long-term partnership. Oregon Community Bank (OCB) is thrilled to announce the new Elite Sponsorship of Oregon Youth Basketball (OYB). OYB provides an opportunity for the youth of Oregon to develop their basketball skills in a safe environment by providing instructional and competitive basketball opportunities.
“Youth athletics is an important part of our community, not only for the players but the community as a whole. Oregon Community Bank is proud to support active healthy lifestyles along with sportsmanship. Oregon Youth Basketball is a fantastic organization and we are excited about this sponsorship,” Steve Peotter, President and CEO of Oregon Community Bank shared.
As part of this sponsorship, OCB will donate $15,000 over the next five years toward the purchase of new game uniforms for the almost 250 youth boys and girls that play travel basketball in Oregon. The new-look uniforms will celebrate the new partnership by featuring the OCB logo on the upper back of the jersey. The new uniforms, which will be reused each year, replace the travel jerseys which have been used over the past many years.
Oregon Community Bank has been one of the lead sponsors of OYB for many years as it has sponsored teams in the program’s in-house recreational OYBL program and provided funding for coach’s shirts. OCB’s sponsorship has and will continue to assist the club purchase equipment and supplies as well as keep registration fees among the lowest in the area.
“Oregon Community Bank is a great asset to our community and has been a tremendous supporter of youth athletics over the years,” stated Michael Younggren, OYB President. “Oregon Youth Basketball could not be more excited about this partnership. With this sponsorship our organization will continue to thrive.”
Oregon Youth Basketball is a volunteer-led 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to provide an opportunity for the youth of Oregon to develop their basketball skills in a safe environment by providing instructional and competitive basketball opportunities. Currently, there are over 675 youth boys and girls involved in the OYB program.
