Our goals are to teach boys and girls skills, teamwork, good sportsmanship and safety.
Our Youth Basketball Program, like all YMCA activities for kids, revolves around a positive environment where kids from Plattsburgh and the surrounding area can play.
Everyone can participate, including families! Youth Basketball starts December 12th and runs for 8 weeks. Boys and Girls in Grades 1-2 participate. Older kindergarteners may also play.
Practices are at the YMCA, and possibly another nearby location. Coaches will manage the schedules and contact each player with the information. Basketball practice is held after school, running approximately 1 hour, and we may schedule some Saturday morning practices as well (held at the YMCA). Teams practice twice per week. Please let us know on your registration form which days and times are not good for you.
