Our youth basketball league has no tryouts and everyone is welcome. It is offered during the winter and summer season.  Thanks to the Y’s sports, philosophy and basketball rules, kids participate in every game and receive equal playing time, regardless of skill level. 

Youth Basketball at the Y develops fundamental basketball skills, teaches teamwork and promotes physical activity in a team environment.

Participants should register based on the calendar grade of Fall 2022 to end of the Summer 2023 school year.

All teams are co-ed.
