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

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 locations, and many more locations in the Winter season. Y sports are now offered by region instead of Y location.
