Basketball

Basketball

Trying to win is natural but it is not the primary focus at the YMCA. When you choose to participate in YMCA youth sports know that every player gets to play in every game and the games are exciting and fun. We encourage fair play, positive competition, plus family and community involvement with youth.

Our Basketball program is a terrific way to build skills in sportsmanship, teamwork, and individual growth. Instructional Basketball is fantastic for introducing youth to the game as it emphasizes skill-building in agility, passing/catching, ball handling, and learning the game as a whole).

Teams are composed of 6 to 12 players and will have instructional practices led by a volunteer coach each week. Volunteer coaches are caring adults from the community, and often even have their own child in the sport. All coaches go through a background check as well as a coaches training that emphasizes the importance of skill-building and teaching the core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.

We hope to see you on the court!

Our kindergarten program is a warm introduction to the game. This level does not have games but rather a weekly clinic-style practice on Saturdays hosted by a volunteer coach. Coaches may host scrimmages during the practice depending on the skill level of the team. This no-pressure introduction is sure to have your child excited to come back and play again.
