Basketball

In our six-week pre-season basketball league we focus on teaching age-appropriate skills that our players need to be successful in 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. The first half of the program will be focused on learning essential skills and running drill minded scrimmages. The last three weeks will be focused on games. We invite family and friends to join us on the last day for an end of program celebration game!

Volunteer Coaches

While the YMCA provides paid coaches, we rely on volunteer coaches to help our seasons run smooth and effectively. 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. Benefits of volunteering include coach training, team management skills, and a discount if you have a child enrolled in the current sports session. Not sure how to run a practice or what will be required of you as a coach? We will provide all the training and resources you need to be a great team leader.
