Youth Basketball

Moody Family YMCA youth basketball program is offered in the winter season.  Our youth basketball league has no tryouts and everyone is welcome. 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.

Teams in the following grades will be formed with a blind draw by school:
Kindergarten, 3rd, and 5th

All players in the following grades will return to their same team from the previous year:
1st, 2nd, 4th, and 6th

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

Registration Deadline is October 26th 2022 for K-6th grade and December 14th for 7th and 8th grade.
