YOUTH BASKETBALL

Y Basketball Leagues teach kids the basics of the sport while also helping them make new friends, stay active and learn new skills that will help them succeed in life. We're committed to coaching with a focus on fair play, healthy competition and parent participation.

NEW: GIRLS ONLY & BOYS ONLY BASKETBALL TEAMS STARTING AT AGE 7!

A recent parent survey showed a strong preference to offer girls only and boys only basketball leagues starting at age 7. This also helps to nurture an environment where all players feel comfortable, have the best opportunities for leadership and can reach their full potential. 

Please note that if minimum enrollment numbers are not met, some coed teams will be formed to ensure all players still have the opportunity to play this fall.
