The Y's basketball program is geared toward learning the basic fundamentals of dribbling, passing, shooting, rebounding and defense, with an emphasis on team play, overall game play and of course FUN! While basic skills of the game are developed through practices and games, every child learns sportsmanship and values necessary to be successful in life.

COVID-19 NOTES: Due to COVID-19 restrictions we are allowing 2 spectators per participant at both practices and games. In order to meet state and local guidelines we have to limit the number of people in the field house. All spectators are asked to wear a mask/face covering. Restrooms are available for handwashing, hand sanitizer will be available and the Y will be sanitizing all equipment between practices and games. Additional COVID-19 information will be distributed to parents/guardians prior to the season beginning.
