It?s hoops time! Hit the hardwoods with the folks who invented the game - the YMCA. In this recreational league, your child will learn the fundamentals of basketball, sportsmanship, teamwork and healthy habits while practicing skills and having fun. We promise no try outs, no getting cut and no bench warmers. YMCA youth sports encourage and promote healthy kids, families and communities by placing a priority on family involvement, healthy competition rather than rivalry, the value of participation over winning, team-building as well as individual development, a positive self-image and a sense of fair play and mutual respect for others. Parents are encouraged to be more than mere spectators, by contributing their time as volunteer coaches - as well as being their kid's greatest fan.
