Youth Basketball

In our six week pre-season basketball league we focus on teaching the skills our players need to be successful in the their regular season. Players will improve ball skills like dribbling, passing and shooting, but will also learn court dynamics such as defensive movements and gameplay mechanics. Each we will end with a friendly scrimmage that will put to the test all the skills they were taught that day.

Volunteer Coaches

All YMCA sports leagues are coached by volunteers, the YMCA does not provide paid coaches. We are always looking for great coaches for all sports. If you are interested in joining our team as a volunteer coach, please contact our athletics coordinator for more information.
