WINTER YOUTH BASKETBALL
Did you know? Basketball was invented as an indoor winter sport by the YMCA!
We honor a tradition that stretches back over 130 years with annual Winter Leagues that promote healthy competition over rivalry and prove the value of participation over winning. The Y pairs team-building with individual development, positive self-image, and a sense of fair play.
During the week, teams are given YMCA gym space for practice at designated times on Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday (to be assigned as teams form). Teams then face off during games every Saturday from January 20 to March 9.
- Boys League: 1st-8th grades
- Girls League: 1st-5th grades
- Player Fee: $70
Registration is open November 1st through December 29th. There are two steps to register and BOTH steps are required before a spot is secured.
STEP 1: Select a League for your child via Daxko.
STEP 2: Submit a player registration form at the Y or to Sports Director Heber: email@example.com

A variety of youth programs and camps are available at different times throughout the year.
Goju Ryu Karate is designed for self-defense and is excellent for self-discipline. It retains many of the circular movements and artistic beauty of Chinese Kung Fu. Students are tested at the end of each session to be promoted or held at their appropriate rank. Ask about the next sessions!
