LEARN BASKETBALL WHERE IT WAS INVENTED

There’s no better place to learn the basics of basketball than where it was invented – the Y. Since 1891, Y volunteers have coached kids and adults in this high-energy, exciting game. Volunteer coaches lead players in drills and games designed to develop the fundamental skills of ball handling, dribbling, passing, shooting and defense. Our basketball programs fit the level of every level athletes and provide a space where kids can improve technique and build lasting friendships!

 

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.
