Youth Basketball

We have teams for kids ages 4-12, with fall and winter basketball leagues, fundamentals teaching and summer basketball camps. At the Y, kids participate in every basketball game and receive equal playing time, regardless of skill level.

Winter Youth Basketball

Volunteer coaches emphasize team work, fair play and equal participation but most of all FUN! Teams practice once a week at area schools. Games will be played on Friday evenings and/or Saturday mornings at any of the YMCA branches. Players are divided into teams by grade. No practices/games during Thanksgiving week.

Program change (to youth basketball only):  due to COVID-19, our youth basketball program structure has changed. Practices will be held the first three weeks of the session and then will revert to games only. This is due to no access at area school gym sites. All practices will be reserved by coaches at our YMCA branches.
