In a Team Environment
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. Our goal is to teach boys and girls teamwork, skills, good sportsmanship, and safety.
Everyone can participate, including families! Youth Basketball starts December and runs for 8 weeks. Boys and Girls in Grades 1-2 participate. Older kindergartners 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.
Each player receives:
YMCA Basketball T-shirt
Pizza and swim party at the end of the season
Basketball Scrimmages and Games
The coaches will schedule scrimmages and games and some may be held on different days from original practice days and times.
Fees & Registration
Member fees are $50 and $100 for non-members.
Youth Basketball registration begins in November and continues until the program begins in early December.
