Basketball

From dribbling, to lay-ups, to free throws, YMCA youth basketball teaches the fundamentals of basketball and provides kids ages 3 to 18 with a positive basketball experience. Through regular practices and games, teammates gain a strong knowledge of basketball, from shooting, to passing, to blocking and more. Plus they have fun and learn teamwork, which leads to a lifelong love of the sport.

In Arvada, YMCA youth basketball teams play and practice at the Susan M. Duncan Family YMCA.

The Duncan YMCA offers basketball in the following seasons.
