Play It Forward Expansion Project

Anderson Area YMCA has a long history of providing youth sports in Anderson County. For over 49 years, the Ducworth/Tucker Sports Complex located on Evergreen Road off Hwy 81N, has served as the venue for sports programming. We are excited to share that a YMCA Sports Park expansion project is currently underway. PLAY IT FORWARD is a capital campaign designed to meet the growing recreational needs of families as a result of a feasibility study conducted in the spring of 2019.

An expanded, improved venue would better serve children and their families as they seek to stay active and healthy. The new and improved sports park would be an asset to the entire community.

“I’ve coached at Ducworth/Tucker and my kids played there. The families who gave the land were so generous. It is time for the rest of us to follow their example. Our contributions will help make this facility more of a reflection of the overall excellence of the Y sports program.”

Terence Roberts
Mayor, City of Anderson


“YMCA youth sports saved my life. I could have had a very different path. We need to make sure we do what we can for all kids regardless of their circumstances and offer them the opportunity for a better life.”
