Youth Basketball

Ymca Basketball Program

YMCA Youth Basketball emphasizes fun while encouraging fundamental skill development, teamwork and sportsmanship.

YMCA Basketball Rookie program is a 50/50 developmental style league. Each team will meet once per week practice will take place the first thirty minutes and game will follow for the remainder of the hour. YMCA Rookies is designed for the beginner who wants to experience youth sports once a week. Leagues are structured to allow for both practice and game experiences in the same day. Participants will learn new skills for 30 minutes and put those skills to the test during a short 30 minute game after the practice.

YMCA Rookie Plus program focuses on skill development, fun, and a sense of team in a semi-competitive environment. Our rules have been adjusted to ensure better parity and limit the ability of a team to “run up the score”. All Rookie Plus divisions will practice one hour per week with a game on Saturdays.

Shooting hoops on our Y courts is the perfect way to have your child build their coordination, sportsmanship, and leadership skills. Basketball promotes language and communication skills with constant verbal and nonverbal cues and the promotion of communication between team members. Our basketball programs offer the ability to learn skills in teamwork, as well as a variety of practices and games to be involved with.
