BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB FIELD DAY
JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -

Boys and Girls Clubs from across the region teamed up Friday to play and learn.

This was the first ever Boys & Girls Club Field Day at the Johnson City location. There kids were playing flag football, table tennis, and other games.

Organizers tell us this event was a way to show kids how to better play and work together.

Kids also got to take part in a one-of-a-kind video game competition. "It's not just gaming to totally have fun but to also do some education. It evokes creativity with our kids and eye-hand coordination and they're competing against each other," said Robin Crumley with the Johnson City Boys & Girls Club.

Organizers tell us they plan on doing this event next summer but at another Boys & Girls Club location.
