Through our Y youth sports programs, millions of youth today are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement. The YMCA believes that its 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 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.
The South Mountain YMCA and the South Orange Recreation Department will be collaborating this summer to offer boys and girls basketball clinics and game play on the Baird courts. Parents should also know that the YMCA coaching staff monitors and supervises the Baird Courts for the South Orange Rec. Dept. during designated times to insure safe basketball play and help younger children to gain access to the courts when they are otherwise busy with adult open play.
Those monitored court times are: Thursdays and Fridays 4:00pm - Sunset
Saturdays and Sundays 12:00pm - Sunset
