Our league provides a fun and supportive environment for children to learn and improve their basketball skills. YMCA youth sports leagues are focused on building life skills, fundamental skills of a sport, and the Y character values of honesty, caring, respect, and responsibility. Scholarships available.

Volunteer to be a coach!
When you volunteer to COACH children, you have the opportunity to make a lifelong impact on youth. It is the opportunity to teach the core values of humanity and skills for the sport all at the same time with intention and purpose. 

It does not take extra time, it just takes being intentional about the implementation and recognition of core values of caring, respect, responsibility, and honesty.

When these core values are taught, modeled, and practiced, youth naturally learn good sportsmanship and good citizenship. 

THANK YOU SO MUCH for your commitment to building good humans and introducing fundamental skills for basketball. You are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!
