The Summit Area YMCA has Basketball programs for all ages and levels. We teach the basic skills and rules of the sport, while also focusing on the important values of sportsmanship, teamwork and more. Join a clinic and improve your skills, or join a league to compete and unleash the basketball star inside you!
Participation in our Youth Basketball League (Ages 5-9) is open to all. Players must meet the age requirement for their division by October 1. Learn basketball skills, make new friends, grow self-confidence, and more! Players learn the fundamentals of basketball in a safe and fun environment, with each player being guaranteed playing time. Our coaches place emphasis on positive competition, teamwork & fair play.
Participation in our travel basketball teams (Ages 8-14) is based on tryouts. For players who make either team (5th & 6th Grade or 7th & 8th Grade).
Registration for our 2018-2019 Travel league is closed. Tryouts for the 2019-2020 Travel league begin in September 2019.
Our basketball clinics are designed to develop fundamental basketball skills while learning, teamwork, strategy and sportsmanship. Children will learn basketball rules, shooting, passing and ball handling. They will also learn offensive and defensive skills like rebounding and team play. We also offer private and small group basketball training sessions for members only. This gives your child a chance to get one on one attention with our skilled basketball instructors.
