Basketball at the Y

Get in the Game
Now is the time to get in the game and start teaching your children the basic fundamentals of basketball at the Y. Our sports programs seeks to lay a foundation for parents to spend quality time together with their children while learning how to properly teach and support them in sports, watch them have fun, learn new skills and meet new friends. YMCA Youth Sports help young people by emphasizing skill development – not competition.

We believe an important component of YMCA Youth Sports is the concept of fair play and respect for oneself, one’s opponent and others involved in competition. Players, volunteer coaches, officials, and spectators share a responsibility for fair play and good sportsmanship. Good sportsmanship for the YMCA is encompassed by the concept of positive character development. The YMCA Youth Sports Program helps kids become not only become better players, but better people as well.  Every child gets to play and the games are safe, exciting and fun. We encourage fair play, positive competition, and family involvement.
