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.
Players ages 3-5 are introduced to fundamentals of the sport through instructional practices and scrimmage games. Programs are offered year-round and vary by center but may include cheer, baseball, basketball, flag football and soccer.
Adaptive / Challenger Sports
Athletes are assigned to teams by age and ability, and are coached by volunteers. A volunteer buddy is partnered with each athlete to offer assistance as needed throughout the game, allowing parents to relax and cheer from the sidelines. Sports fundamentals are taught through drills at practices and during games. Fitness classes incorporate physical activity with lessons on nutrition and healthy living.
