YOUTH BASKETBALL

YOUTH BASKETBALL LEAGUE

Youth Basketball League (YBL) is open to boys and girls in Kindergarten through 4th Grade and teaches participants the basics of basketball through skills practice and fun games with guided instruction. Youth build confidence and develop lasting friendships, learn the importance of teamwork, good sportsmanship, as well as the Y core values of caring, honest, respect, and responsibility.

The Westport Weston Family YMCA builds stronger communities with programs and services that help all individuals learn, grow, and thrive in a welcoming, inclusive environment. In fact, the Y offers activities and programs for everyone — every day! Find the program that’s right for you.

YBL participants are encouraged to sign up for Session 1 (11/6 – 12/18) and Session 2 (1/3 – 2/19 – once registration is open).
