Summer Youth Basketball League


Youth basketball is an exciting sport combining team play and individual skills. YMCA youth basketball promises no getting cut and no bench warmers!

YMCA utilizes volunteer coaches to focus on participation and fun! While basic skills of the game are developed through practices and games, every child learns sportsmanship and values necessary to be successful in life.

As we continue to evolve our programs to fit within the current landscape, we want to ensure you there is no better place to learn the basics of basketball than where it was invented in 1891. Our youth basketball leagues help kids improve their skills, challenge themselves and grow in sportsmanship. Our basketball programs emphasize the values of team sports, including fair play, team work and having fun.

The Y will follow recommendations from the CDC, Governor Cooper, public school systems, state and local health departments, as well as the North Carolina High School Athletic Association.

Due to the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, the Y has adjusted some of our normal operating procedures.
