Youth Basketball League

White Rock Basketball Seasons:

Summer (June through July)

Winter (December through January)

 

Youth Basketball leagues for Pre-K to Sixth Grade. Players participate in every game and receive equal playing time, regardless of skill level. Our Youth Sports program encourages and strengthens communities by placing a priority on family involvement, healthy competition rather than rivalry, team building as well as individual development, and character building.

YGAMETIME

We have just changed our Sports Management Software from Playerspace to YGAMETIME

YGAMETIME can be viewed on an array of different devices, and it does not require an app to operate, only an internet connection. 

From what we can tell, coaches cannot communicate with parents through YGAMETIME, so please look out for emails and text messages from your coaches. If you do not already have the app GroupMe, we recommend downloading it.

"Help! I have not received email communication/do not know what team my child is on/do not know when my child's practices and games are."

YMCA Staff will send all communications through our sports management site YGAMETIME. All updates to rosters, schedules, weather activity, and events will be posted to your team page. 

Notifications from YGAMETIME will be sent to the email address that you provided at registration. Please add YGAMETIME to your safe sender list to ensure that you receive all notifications. If you believe that you are not receiving notifications, please check your junk/spam folders for emails from 'White Rock Sports Association.' 

If you have concerns about the email address or phone number that you provided at registration, contact your YMCA youth sports director.

When/How do I get my Child's jersey?

Jerseys arrive 1-2 weeks prior to the season, but due to production shortages across the country, there is a possibility they may arrive after the season starts. Tyler and Jordan will communicate with your team coaches when jersey pick-up is available. The coaches will pick up the jerseys and pass them out either at practice or before the start of your first game.
