Youth 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.

League Overview and FAQ

AGES: 5+
TIME: 1 practice and 1 game per week, each an hour long
FEES: Vary by location, discounts for Y members

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.

Registration for the Winter 2017-18 season is closed. Contact your Y location for additional information and late registration options.
