TAKE YOUR BEST SHOT
Hit the hardwoods with the folks who invented the game - the Y! Youth basketball at the Y combines team play and individual skills in a fun and supportive environment. Boys & Girls develop basketball skills including passing, receiving, shooting, footwork and dribbling. Not only will children have an opportunity to improve their technique, but they'll also build social skills, gain confidence and develop leadership skills.
For students in grades K-6th.
Parents are encouraged to be more than mere spectators, by contributing their time as volunteer coaches - as well as being their kid's greatest fan. Sign up to be a volunteer coach HERE!
