Its hoops time at the Y! This recreational basketball program is designed for youngsters to have fun while learning sportsmanship as well as basketball rules and skills. Games are played with age-appropriate equipment and lowered hoops for the younger groups.
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.
You will register by grade level and your child will be drafted by the group of coaches on May 9th. Practices start the week of May 15th and games are played Saturdays starting May 20th, 2017.
Team Selection Process: Teams will be determined by a draft process. Coaches will pick the kids in their age division with only one preferred pick. This will ensure that the talent level is as close to equal as possible.
