Youth Basketball

Youth Basketball

Our basketball programs are designed for players of all abilities who want to have fun, take part in healthy competition and develop their skills. Players will learn the fundamentals of the game and the importance of teamwork, responsibility and sportsmanship. Volunteer coaches provide support and encouragement and serve as positive role models for youth.

Leagues are offered in the fall for ages 3-11. Leagues feature a 6-game schedule from February 5 through March 25, 2023 with games on Saturdays and one night of practice per week. All participants are given the opportunity to play equal amounts during games to the best of the coach’s ability. Hoop height and basketball sizes will vary depending on age group.

At the YMCA, all of our youth sports coaches are volunteers. If you would like to make a positive impact in a young person’s life, please consider volunteering.
