Did you know that basketball is a YMCA invention!?  

Basketball was invented in 1891. While teaching at the International YMCA Training School, James Naismith was given the challenge of creating a game that could be played indoors during the cold winter months. Hanging simple peach baskets and using a soccer ball, Naismith created the game of basketball and wrote the first 13 rules of the game.

Recreational basketball league for kids grades pre-kindergarten to ninth. It is designed to teach the proper way to dribble, shoot and pass. Participants will learn how to play offense and defense. Youth Basketball is open to kids ages 3-14, with year-round programs & leagues. Kids participate in every game and receive equal playing time, regardless of skill level.
