Youth Basketball

Youth Basketball

After over a hundred years of teaching this sport, we’ve learned a thing or two. YMCA basketball emphasizes fun while encouraging fundamental skill development, teamwork and sportsmanship. Our program gives kids exposure to positive competition as they continue to grow as a player, athlete and person by focusing on skills, rules, mechanics and basics like listening to coaches or being a good teammate to help participants refine their skills in a sport they love. Our coaches focus on the youth basketball players’ development of building core skills such as ball handling, defense, offense, rebounding, shooting, conditioning and more. We’re creating team players and future leaders through team sports. 

Basketball Clinics




This clinic is for building and improving skills through drills and games in the fundamentals of basketball. As skills progress, we will work on scrimmaging to prepare for real basketball games. Dribble, pass, shoot and have fun!


Indoor Basketball Leagues (Offered in the Fall)

Team players are made HERE! The YMCA Youth Indoor Basketball League helps kids become not only better athletes, but better people as well. With an emphasis on fair play and safety first, our programs are progressive with age-appropriate rules to help teach soccer and basketball for kids, while keeping it fun. Our Youth Indoor Leagues build winners in life, emphasizing good sportsmanship, fitness, fair play, fundamentals and fun while implementing our core values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility, and faith.

Players will learn fundamentals and develop new skills while receiving quality playing time. Indoor Basketball Leagues consist of 6 weeks regular season and 2 weeks of playoff games.

Youth Basketball Leagues start from Grade K and continue through Middle School. To register, go to Indoor Youth Leagues page.

Practices and Games

Our focus is on participation and fun! While basic skills of the game are developed through practices and games, every child learns sportsmanship and values necessary to be successful in life. We encourage fair play, positive competition and family involvement. Our sports leagues (youth basketball, youth indoor soccer and middle school dodgeball) are offered seasonally. Check out what’s available now in program registration for all our youth sports. Youth waiver and code of conduct must be submitted to complete registration.

Volunteer Coaching Opportunities

We’re seeking volunteers interested in coaching youth sports. Our coaches make YMCA youth sports possible and create a lifelong impact on children by encouraging participation and emphasizing sportsmanship and strong character while they are learning basic sport skills. When you become a volunteer, the Y will introduce you to coaching and provide specific resources to the sport you coach.
