Basketball at the YMCA
Recreational sports allow kids to develop athletic skills in a league format.
A typical season schedule:
- Week 1 is a team practice
- Weeks 2 through 7 begin with a 30-minute practice followed by a 45-minute game.
Referees and scoring are incorporated in grade levels 3 and 4. These programs are all coached by volunteer parents, please see Parents and Coaching for more information about getting involved.
