HISTORY

The Worthington Youth Boosters has been in existence since 1952. While Worthington experienced significant growth in the 50's, so did the number of young families who had children with a need for organized sports. A group of parent volunteers formed the Cardinal Boosters. Baseball was the first sport. Over time, community growth continued and many sports were added. When the school system added a second high school in the late 80's, it transformed into the Worthington Youth Boosters, also known as "WYB". The group was registered as a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization in 1988.
