Not only is the YMCA the birthplace of basketball, but the South Mountain YMCA has been providing the finest in youth basketball instruction  in the area for years.   Coaches Dave Berry and Fred Ross will provide leadership to all of our basketball programs.

BASKETBALL CLINIC AND LEAGUES (Grades 1-4)
Children can participate in a fun, low-intensity basketball league where competition is not emphasized and team work and good sportsmanship are. No standings are kept and everyone plays at least one half of a game. Children with minimal basketball skills should do one of our Clinic Only programs first.  (see above)  Children new to the Y wishing to start off in the league must get permission from the Program Director, Dave Berry.
Placement evaluations for the children in this league will be held the first week of the session on Tuesday 10/28 or Wednesday 10/29. See below for the evaluation schedule. After placement on a team, players will have an assigned 45 minute practice time for the balance of the session on either a Tuesday or Wednesday.  Please inform the coach of any clinic practice scheduling requirements before the end of the evaluation. Do not ask for your child to be placed on a particular team unless there is a scheduling conflict (siblings will be placed on the same team). Depending on your team schedule, games will be on the weekends at one of the times listed below. All clinics and games are held in the Y Gym.  A team shirt is included.
