Did you know!? Basketball was invented by the YMCA in 1891! This is more than a youth basketball program. It’s about mentoring youth, encouraging friendships, building positive relationships, healthy living, providing a feeling of belonging and safety, and creating future leaders within the community. Your children will be taking their shot in this exciting and stimulating program! Youth will practice with their coach and team, play games and build on their basketball skills, while also learning teamwork and friendly competition.
DEVELOPING CHARACTER All of our programs focus on developing the character traits of Honesty, Caring, Respect, and Responsibility.
COME PLAY WITH THE NBA! We will be incorporating the Jr. NBA curriculum into our new summer league! The Jr. NBA welcomes all. Just like the YMCA, they celebrate and encourage diversity and inclusion.

WELCOME TO ALL
Financial Assistance is available to those who apply and qualify. Annual Campaign Funds are raised by the Y each year to help provide this benefit to the community. The Y recognizes that some individuals and families struggle to pay the rent, put food on the table and buy clothes for their kids due to unforeseen circumstances. They need financial assistance to come to the Y, to stay healthy, to be active and to thrive in life. Through the annual campaign, we make sure that our doors are open to all. Donor support helps thousands of youth and families live healthier and happier lives. They do better in school. They manage their illnesses. And kids get a good square meal!
If you feel that you are in need of assistance to become a Y member or program participant, please ask for a financial assistance form at the front desk. You may also download and print from this page. For more information, contact email@example.com
