Overview

  • Team formation
    • Teams are formed by the Y and will initially be started 4 weeks before the beginning of the program. Players who register before the registration deadline will be placed on their current school team unless there are too few registered players. The following criteria will be used to form teams from players that register prior to the registration deadline:
      • Coach/Teammate Request
      • Grade
      • School
      • Coach Availability (If the guardian volunteers to coach)
      • Date of Registration
  • Practice Information
    • YMCA Youth Sports Leadership will work with schools to solidify practice locations, days and times. The volunteer coach of your player’s team will choose from what practice options are available. Practices will be located at a school or Y facility that is nearest where they team is located. In divisions that are smaller, teams may be made from multiple schools, so practices may be a little further from where you are located.
      • 4th–6th/7th grade teams practice twice a week for a total of two hours.
  • Equipment
    • Players will be responsible for bringing a basketball to practice.
      • For 3rd-6th/7th grade divisions players will use a intermediate sized ball (28.5).
    • Players will wear athletic clothing that they can easily move around and be active in.
    • Athletic type shoes that are non-marking, as we don’t want to damage courts.
      • Appropriate shoes would be basketball shoes, running shoes, tennis shoes etc.
