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.
