Durham YMCAs – Youth Basketball

The Durham YMCAs offer a youth basketball league for kids age 3 to grade 8. Teams will practice and play games at the Downtown Durham Y or the Lakewood Y.

Age, grade and skill level determine team assignments. Volunteers coach our teams, and all kids play. All YMCA sports leagues emphasize teamwork and fair play.

Teams for age 3 to grade K practice and play on Saturdays. Teams for grades 1 to 8 practice one night a week and play once on Saturdays. All Pre-K-2nd Grade Teams are co-ed. The 3rd-5th Grade and 6th-8th grade leagues will be divided by gender.    

The Downtown Durham YMCA is located on West Morgan Street near Durham Central Park. The Lakewood YMCA is located on Chapel Hill Road between US Route 15-501 and Morehead Avenue.


Practice begins January 4, and the season starts Saturday, January 16.

Pre-K and Kindergarten teams will meet on Saturday mornings only. 

1st-8th Grade Teams will practice one evening a week and all games will be on Saturdays.
