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 4-13 years old Mondays

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.

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.
