Youth Basketball is an exciting sport combining team play and individual skills. YMCA youth basketball promises no tryouts, no getting cut and no bench-warmers! Every child plays at least half of every game while making friends and learning new techniques. The YMCA utilizes volunteer coaches to focus on participation and fun!
Passing, shooting and defensive skills are strengthened and the importance of physical fitness and conditioning are stressed. While basic skills of the game are developed through practices and games, every child learns sportsmanship and values necessary to be successful in life. Every game begins with a youth sports prayer and ends with a handshake.
