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. 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.

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.  Participants are divided into teams at an evaluation class and games start the following weekend.  Children new to basketball or with minimal basketball skills should do one of our Clinic Only programs first (see above).

Team placement evaluations for the children in this league will be held the first week of the session on a Tuesday or Wednesday.  See below for the evaluation schedule.  Choose any grade appropriate evaluation to attend.  For the rest of the session, after placement on a team, players will have an assigned 45 minute team practice class time on 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 at one of the times on the weekend day listed below.  A game shirt is included to be distributed at first game.
