Through AGBU’s many sports leagues, youth in all age categories learn the fundamentals of backgammon, basketball, chess, soccer, swimming, table tennis and volleyball, never forgetting to follow the most important rule: to have fun.
With our seasoned coaching staff and all-purpose facilities, participants develop skills, improve their self-esteem, and commit to the values of good sportsmanship and fair play, which serve them both on and off the field. We proudly cheer on all of our teams, including the AGBU Armenian Youth Association (AYA) Antranik Beirut Women’s Basketball team and the Ararat Nicosia Men’s Futsal Team, which have risen to the professional level and won numerous national championship competitions. In addition, young athletes practice their favorite sports within AGBU Chapter teams as they train for local and regional games across Australia, Europe, the Middle East, North America and South America.
Our athletics initiatives exercise skill, foster teamwork, and build stronger communities
