YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas


Basketball at the YMCA

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.

At the Y, kids participate in every basketball game and receive equal playing time, regardless of skill level.
