TAKE YOUR BEST SHOT
Basketball was invented in 1891. While teaching at the International YMCA Training School, James Naismith was given the challenge of creating a game that could be played indoors during the cold winter months. Hanging simple peach baskets and using a soccer ball, Naismith created the game of basketball and wrote the first 13 rules of the game.
This is more than a youth basketball program. It’s about mentoring youth, encouraging friendships and 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 our basketball program. Kids will learn the fundamentals and build on their basketball skills while having a blast!
Everybody Plays & Everybody Wins!
Participants will practice, play games and build on their basketball skills while learning teamwork.
Stay tuned for our Winter Basketball dates and details!
Fees: $40/members and $50 for non-members

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
