Youth Basketball

Youth Basketball at the Y is a great place for kids to fine-tune their skills, practice good sportsmanship and have fun.  We offer programming for Grades K-5.

Please note: A youth or family membership is required with this program!

Athletes participating in the instructional basketball program will continue to grow their knowledge and love of basketball in a fun atmosphere.

The HVYMCA implements the Jr. NBA curriculum to help athletes develop their passing, shooting, and defensive skills.

Each week, athletes will advance through specific drills and techniques, designed to enhance your athlete’s skill set and improve their basketball talents.
