From Dinky Dunkers to Champions!


The Y offers many options for youth to explore the game of basketball. Not only do we proudly participate in YBL (Youth Basketball League), we also offer clinics and individual instruction for those wanting to brush up on technique or just learn how to play.

In YBL there are no try-outs or cuts, everyone is a valuable member of the team. The most skilled and the least skilled players are given equal attention. YMCA coaches and athletes keep winning in perspective. Trying to win is natural, but it is not the primary objective of YMCA youth leagues.

Youth Basketball League (YBL) – 2019

Early Registration:  November 12 – December 2

Members: $70   Nonmembers:  $95

Regular Registration:  December 3 – December 31

Members: $90   Nonmembers:  $120

The Tri-Cities Family YMCA has been proud to be a part of this program for over 35 years, and last year more than 400 youth participated in YBL. We count on volunteers to instruct the game of basketball and many are parents and past participants that simply want to give back and stay involved in this great community venture.

Registration begins in November for this popular instructional league that launches in January of 2019. Girls and boys in Young 5’s through 8th grade will be divided into teams which will have one practice during the week and one game per week. YBL runs January-March. Volunteer coaches make this league possible. Coaches will determine a practice schedule and draft players at a coaches meeting.

Please stop by the Welcome Center for coach packet and application.
