This league introduces the sport of basketball to these young players. They will have fun learning the fundamentals of play including basic skills, game rules, good sportsmanship, game play, technique, and more.

Competitive League

This league takes what kids already know about basketball and strengthens their knowledge and skills. They will learn the true meaning of good sportsmanship through competitive game play with high school rules. All while receiving equal playing time for all members of the team.

Volunteer Coaching Staff

This league is made possible by volunteer coaching staff. Each coach and assistant coach abide by the YMCA rules and all understand that "Everyone Plays, Everyone Wins".

Jr. NBA League

The YMCA has officially partnered with the Jr. NBA Leagues program which is the official recreational youth basketball league of the NBA and WNBA.

All Jr. NBA Leagues are run by pre-approved league operators who have undergone a background screening and SafeSport certification, and have acknowledged required protocols. Currently, Jr. NBA Leagues competitions are local. We’re continuing to evaluate ways to expand and conduct regional and national competitions. The Jr. NBA, NBA, and NBA Properties do not in any way control or operate the activities of any Jr. NBA League or team.

HUGE THANK YOU TO OUR
YOUTH SPORTS SPONSORS AND SUPPORTERS
Youth Basketball Leagues

Players will learn the basics of basketball including shooting, dribbling, passing, and game rules. Game concepts, including offense and defense, will be introduced and developed as players’ skill levels develop. All skills and equipment will be age appropriate.

Volunteer Coaches

This program is possible through the generous help of volunteer coaches. Coaches are responsible for being a good role model for the kids as well as teaching them the fundamentals of football and good sportsmanship through both practice and game play. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer coach, contact our Youth Sports Director, Chris, at 852-0141 or email cgreek@ymcaminot.org
