YOUTH BASKETBALL

AGES 5-13

Basketball-games-2022-web2.jpg

Join the best basketball program in the community.  After all, The Y invented basketball!  James Naismith, a teacher at the international YMCA training school, invented basketball in 1891. He was challenged to create a game that could be played indoors during the cold winter months. By hanging simple peach baskets and using a soccer ball, Naismith created the game of basketball and wrote the first 13 rules of the game. 

Youth Basketball encourages and promotes healthy kids, families and communities by prioritizing family involvement, wholesome competition and the value of participation - not just winning. Kids and teens learn team-building skills, a sense of fair play and mutual respect for others, while also growing as individuals and developing a positive self-image. Youth Basketball is held during the spring, summer, and fall months for youths ages 5 - 14.​ We encourage parents to get involved by contributing time as volunteer coaches - as well as being their kid's greatest fan.
