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 basketball.

  • Fall 2 2020 Registration: August 31 - September 25 
  • Fall 2 2020 Season: October 12 - December 12
