“Help Us Support Youth Sports”
The Old Timers Athletic Association of Greenwich provides significant and critical financial support to allow local families’ children to participate in athletic programs. Many of the families that we support cannot afford the rising costs of athletic equipment, uniforms and team registrations. Our annual charity golf tournament is a major fundraising event that allows us to meet our goals and support youth sports in our community.
The Old Timers Athletic Association of Greenwich was founded in 1960 by Joe and Jim Branca to encourage youth activities and sports, unite and continue the fellowship, good sportsmanship, and honor worthy old time athletes and others who were associated with sports in our community. Along
with the promotion and support of youth sports programs, the centerpiece of the Branca Brothers’ vision was the college scholarship program. The Old Timers have awarded college scholarships to 96 worthy young student-athletes from its inception through 2014.
The Greenwich Old Timers Athletic Association has established a longstanding tradition of volunteering and giving back to the community. In summary, we have exceeded $650,000 in total contributions in support of youth athletic programs and student athletes. At our Annual Awards Dinner, we have honored 219 local members of our community for their achievements, and 143 national sports luminaries.
