It's hoop time at the Y! Boys and girls in grades Pre-K through 6th have the opportunity to improve their skills, have fun, develop sportsmanship, and learn about team play in the Y youth basketball program. Registration for the program continues through November 8. Youth in Grades 3 -6 will participate in a fun skills night, allowing coaches to develop a draft list of players, and help equal out the talent on each team. Exact days and times of skills nights will be announced at a later date.
