YMCA Youth Basketball program registration is open until Oct 24.

The Family YMCA’s Youth Basketball program is a skills developmental program for youth in grades 1-6 that would like to learn the fundamentals of basketball, team participation and to play a few games.

Registration for this program is open through Oct. 24. Players will be placed on teams based on their local school and will meet twice a week for practice Nov. 6–Feb. 2.

Games are on Saturdays Dec. 9–Feb. 3. Teams for grades 1-2 are co-ed, with boys and girls spilt for grades 3-4 and grades 5-6.

Volunteer coaches, assistant coaches and team parents are needed. The YMCA is also looking for referees for the Saturday games. This is a paid position and applications will be accepted at The YMCA until Nov. 15.

Price for the basketball season is $120 / $90 for Y Members. This includes team jerseys, gym rentals, practice gear and refs for the games.

As always, financial assistance is available thanks to the YMCA Annual Campaign. No one is turned away because of an inability to pay. Scholarship applications are available at the YMCA front desk. Please contact Jeremy Smith, the Sports & Adventure Director, with any questions.  To register your child for basketball or for more information, come by the YMCA at 1450 Iris St.
