Basketball

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+
TIME: 1 practice and 1 game per week, each an hour long
FEES: Vary by location, discounts for Y members
REGISTRATION: Summer and Winter Leagues

Youth basketball at the Y combines team play and individual skills in a fun and supportive environment.  Children develop basketball skills including passing, receiving, shooting, footwork and dribbling. Not only will children have an opportunity to improve their technique, but they'll also build social skills, gain confidence and develop leadership skills.

Basketball is offered year-round at select Y locations, and many more Y locations in the Winter season.

Please call the Welcome Center at your Y for more information or to register (based on availability).
