Youth Basketball

The YMCA offers basketball for ages 4 - 14. Teams play at YMCAs and area schools. 

YMCA youth sports provide opportunities for camaraderie, building skills and character development. We aim to keep kids moving and focus on their health and well-being. 

Our focus will continue to be on player and team development, coaching with character and keeping kids active and safe in our programs. Please be sure to check our Youth Sports Health and Safety page for the latest information and guidelines.

Teams

Teams are formed based on age. See below for details and locations. Please refer to our age chart to determine your child's age group.

Players

All players must have sneakers with non-marking soles.
