Basketball

Youth basketball is an exciting sport combining team play and individual skills. YMCA youth basketball promises no try outs, no getting cut and no bench warmers! Your child will learn how to dribble, shoot, pass and rebound, and the positions of the game. We use the YMCA Games Approach in our coaching methods where your child will learn the sport and have fun! Every child plays at least half of every game while making friends and learning new techniques.
