Youth Basketball League

Youth Basketball League

Our basketball programs are designed for players of all abilities who want to have fun, take part in healthy competition and develop their skills. Players will learn the fundamentals of the game and the importance of teamwork, responsibility and sportsmanship. Volunteer coaches provide support and encouragement and serve as positive role models for youth.

Leagues are offered in the winter for students in 1st through 8th grades with the option to form a new team or join an existing one. Leagues feature two 6 game seasons or 12 game seasons on Saturdays and one practice per week. Kindergarten Basketball will feature two 6 week sessions that are split in to three practices and three scrimmages against other teams or one 12 week session. Iowa High School league who don’t play on their school’s team may choose to compete in our Iowa Wolves Metro League. Financial assistance is available to make the program accessible to all. 

If you are requesting teammates or submitting a team roster you must have a minimum of 8 players on your team. Additional players may be added to your roster at the discretion of the YMCA Youth Sports Director
