There's no better place to learn the basics of basketball than where it was invented in 1891. Our exciting recreational and competitive youth basketball leagues help kids improve their skills, challenge themselves and grow in sportsmanship. Our basketball programs emphasize the values of team sports, including fair play, team work and having fun.

  • Kids uncover a new level of determination and elevate skills.
  • They’re encouraged to practice good sportsmanship, win or lose.
  • Players gain confidence in their handling, dribbling, passing, shooting and defensive skills.
  • Kids make new friends, learn positive life lessons and develop a healthy and active lifestyle.


A Place to Belong and Grow

Kids who play basketball and engage in healthy competition discover so much more than their athletic abilities. They experience a sense of belonging and learn what working together accomplishes. We encourage kids to challenge themselves as players and people.


Talented Coaches Who Care

Our coaches know how to encourage fun while maximizing the individual potential of each player. Players practice drills and games designed to develop the fundamental skills of ball handling, dribbling, passing, shooting and defense.
