About Us

Club Schedules
​​National History: Boys & Girls Clubs of America is a congressionally chartered organization having its beginnings in 1860, during the Civil War, when fathers were off to war and their sons roamed the streets back home. Incorporated in 1906, today the Boys & Girls Clubs of America has nearly 4,000 clubs throughout the United States.

Local History: The Boys Club came to Odessa in 1958 and Midland in 1965. In 1990 the Boys Clubs of America became the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. And in 2013, the Odessa and Midland clubs, remaining independent organizations, formed the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Permian Basin. 

Our mission is to help young people become productive, caring and responsible citizens by providing enriching experiences in a positive environment. 

Age: The minimum age to be a Club Kid is six (6) years old. Some of our sports allow participation as young as 4 years old. You must prove your child's age if asked.
