Youth & Girls Basketball begins Sat, October 26

YOUTH BASKETBALL, a 10- week co-ed program, designed for students in Kdg-6th grade, emphasizes skill development and fun! Small baskets and basketballs are used according to students age, so that each child has a chance for success. Students in grades kdg-1 will practice for 4 weeks and have 6 weeks of games. Students in grades 2-6 will practice for the first 2 weeks only, and the remaining 8 games will be played against opposing teams.

New this year, GIRLS BASKETBALL is designed for students in grades 2-6 only. This 10-week program for our female basketball players, focuses on further development of fundamental skills, with a more advanced curriculum in league format. Baskets will be lowered for age appropriate levels to build better form and technique. Ideal for girls not yet interested in travel league basketball.

Basketball, the game that was invented at the YMCA, still feels right at home here. Every year, we help hundreds of sharpshooters find their range. Our basketball program teaches that the game is about more than the winning shot. It’s about teamwork and good sportsmanship.
