Here's Your Shot

Basketball was created by Dr. James Naismith at a YMCA in 1891, and the tradition continues today. Youth Basketball promotes active kids, healthy competition and the Y's values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

AGES: 5+
DAYS: 1 practice per week, 1 game per week

We continue to evaluate the best ways to provide youth sports opportunities as we respond to COVID-19. In order for us to provide larger spaces to allow for social distancing and the benefits of fresh air to help prevent the spread of germs, the Y will only offer youth flag football for the 2020 winter season. We'll continue to have health and safety guidelines in place, such as requiring masks for all spectators and coaches, and for athletes before and after games.
