YMCA of Lincoln’s Railyard Rims Returns to Downtown for Sixth Year

In collaboration with the Downtown Lincoln Association and SCHEELS, the YMCA is hosting the 6th Annual Railyard Rims August 19-20. This 3-on-3 tournament takes basketball to the streets of the Railyard, and players will be hooping for much more than a trophy.

Tournament proceeds benefit the Lincoln YMCA Strong Kids, the nonprofit's fundraising campaign that powers critical programs and activities that keeps kids safe, people healthy, and families strong. In 2021 alone, the Lincoln Y provided over $700,000 in financial assistance to nearly 900 families to they could experience programs ranging from basketball and soccer to swim lessons and summer day camp. The tournament and fundraiser will host companies on Friday night, August 19, with a competitive division on Saturday, August 29. All teams are guaranteed four games with players receiving an official swag bag including a tee and other items generously donated by SCHEELS.

"The opportunity to host this event not only activates downtown, but it raises awareness for a great organization in the Y so they can continue introducing kids to the game of basketball and other valuable youth programs," shared Todd Ogden, president of the Downtown Lincoln Association.
