Youth Basketball

SEMONES FAMILY YMCA youth basketball program is offered in the winter season.  Teams learn how to dribble, shoot, free throw, jump shots, and more. Basketball players learn to listen to their coach, commit to playing a fair game, and bounce back after making a mistake. SEMONES youth basketball players are a slam dunk!

Participants should register based on the calendar grade of Fall 2023 to end of Summer 2024 school year.
