Season: WINTERclientuploads/Youth Sports/1boy basketball.jpeg

In December 1891, at the International YMCA Training School in Springfield, Mass., the school’s director, Dr. Luther Gulick, gave physical education teacher James Naismith two weeks to come up with an indoor winter game to challenge a class of future Y directors. Naismith hung peach baskets to the bottom of a second-level running track and taught the men his new game: basketball. Today, basketball is second only to soccer as the most popular sport in the world.

At the Salina Family YMCA, our basketball leagues are designed to develop fundamental basketball skills while learning teamwork, strategy, and sportsmanship. Skills taught include passing, shooting, dribbling, and the rules of the game. The focus of the league is to have fun, meet new friends and play basketball in a non-competitive environment. All coaches are volunteers and the Salina Family YMCA sports staff will officiate all games.
