HOOP IT UP

YMCA youth basketball promises no try outs, no getting cut and no bench warmers! Every child plays at least half of every game while making friends and learning new techniques.

Basketball at the Y provides children an opportunity to get active and play. Players have fun while developing an appreciation for basketball and physical activity. Participants will develop their skills while learning sportsmanship, teamwork, and character values.

There are four age divisions, ages 3-4, 5-6, 7-8 and 9-11. Each team has one practice during the week, and one game on Saturdays. When signing your child up, please indicate which practice day you would like them to have, this determines team placement.

Volunteer coaches are essential to the success of the program. Interested in coaching? Please fill in the designated area on the registration form for volunteer coaches if you are able to help. Never coached before? Don't worry, we provide coaches manuals and help for our coaches.

Season begins 11/6/2017, with the season ending 12/31/2017! Click the link below to register for your day and time for practice!

Together We Can Do More:

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. When you become a volunteer, the Y will introduce you to coaching and provide resources specific to the sport you coach. For more information, contact your nearest Y by phone or stop by the Welcome Center.

About YMCA Youth Sports
