Through our Y youth sports programs, kids today are cultivating values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement. Youth sports programs can help children to grow personally, clarify values, improve relationships, appreciate diversity, develop leadership skills and have fun.

Not only is the YMCA the birthplace of basketball, but the South Mountain YMCA also has had the finest in youth basketball instruction in the area for years.   Coaches Dave Berry and Fred Ross provide leadership to all of our basketball programs. Parents Note: Children attending the Y's After School Program at the Program Center can be picked up and returned to their classroom by Y staff for any class held at the Y gym and Y field.
