Minis basketball is the perfect introduction to the sport for ages 3 to 5! It is an instructional and recreational 8 week youth basketball league designed for preschoolers to have fun while learning rules and skills of the game. Kids practice the fundamentals of basketball like dribbling, shooting, passing and in most cases, going the right way down the court through fun drills and games. The focus in this league is on inclusion, teamwork, sportsmanship and building confidence. Minis don?t play official games or keep score, it?s all about fun and learning! All teams are co-ed and led by YMCA staff. This league requires parental involvement to help encourage the most fun and participation. Practices with scrimmages are held once per week. Each player gets a YMCA uniform top to wear on and off the court.
