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.
