Our Y believes in nurturing healthy lifestyles and skills of our youth. Basketball is a great way for your child to explore a new sport, increase self-confidence, and work within a team atmosphere. Clinics will focus on teaching kids and fundamentals of basketball and expose them to scrimmages to educate them on game rules and basics of basketball strategy. It also provides an opportunity for adults to be positive role models and serve their community through volunteer coaching.
