Gila River Branch – Sacaton
The Sacaton Branch has a daily average of 115 members between the ages of 5 and 18. The Club opened its doors to the Gila River Indian Community in 1997. The Club draws its members directly from the surrounding community. The local middle and elementary schools provide transportation via bus for youth, and members also walk from one of many surrounding housing projects.
This Club offers programming that engage members in sports, fine arts, technology, and leadership skills. These are nationally recognized programs that help mold members into becoming positive, outstanding community members within society. Stop by the Club and take a tour of our facility!
