Play from the heart
Youth Basketball

Now is the time to start teaching your child the basic fundamentals of basketball. These programs seek to lay a foundation for parents to spend quality time together with their children while learning how to properly teach and support them in sports, watch them have fun, learn new skills and meet new friends. Sports provide a great opportunity to teach values like caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. YMCA Youth Sports help young people by emphasizing skill development – not competition.

Youth Basketball is for boys and girls ages 3-18 years-old.

Registration is from September 1 - November 2. Practices will be one day a week on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday. Games will be played 2-3 times per week Monday through Saturday.

Practices will be held at the branch you register for. Games will be played at the Shuford YMCA (Conover, NC) and the Hickory Foundation YMCA (Hickory, NC).

Registration Fee
The registration fee for Fall Sports is $45 for Members and $80 for Non-Members. Financial assistance is available; please call for more information.
