Youth Basketball

YMCA of the Triangle youth basketball leagues are a great way for your kids to fine-tune their skills, practice good sportsmanship and have fun.

Our recreational youth basketball leagues focus on an "everybody plays, everybody wins" strategy. Out players also learn the values of caring, respect, honesty and responsibility in a team sports environment. 

Teams

Team members spend time on skill-specific drills, such as dribbling, shooting and guarding. They also learn game plays and strategy.

Teams are formed based on age and grade and play at YMCAs and area schools around the Triangle. 

Each player receives a jersey, and all players must have sneakers with non-marking soles to play inside all YMCA gyms.
