Take Your Best Shot.

Hit the hardwoods with the folks who invented the game - the Y! 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.

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.

Y STAR BASKETBALL

Great for all skill levels to learn the game of basketball. Week 1 will be a skills clinic run by YMCA staff, followed by a short practice run by team coaches.  Weeks 2-6 will feature games with a 10-15 minute warm-up session preceding them. Basketball size and hoop height will be adjusted accordingly for each division. View flyer here
