Youth Basketball

Our youth basketball league has no tryouts and everyone is welcome. Thanks to the Y’s sports philosophy and basketball rules, kids participate in every game and receive equal playing time, regardless of skill level.

Youth Basketball at the Y develops fundamental basketball skills, teaches teamwork and promotes physical activity in a team environment.

The Moody Family YMCA runs league basketball once per year from November-February.

We also offer a skills-n-drills clinic before and after each basketball season.
