YMCA Youth Sports Leagues are designed for children of all ages and stress development of skills, teamwork, sportsmanship, and positive competition in a FUN environment. All participants will play equal amounts of time during the games and will have the opportunity to play at all different positions throughout the season.
YMCA Basketball teaches children the fundamentals of basketball while nurturing their love for organized sports. Coaches work on basic ball handling, passing, shooting and defensive skills while introducing defensive and offensive schemes-and kids enjoy learning this great game!
