The Family YMCA is hosting a summer Little Youth Basketball season for two age groups: 4-5 and 6-7.
We welcome this age’s participation in the program and encourage parents to volunteer as coaches, assistant coaches and team parents.
All parents are their children’s first teacher; and children will learn more about their parents who serve as a coach. Minimal basketball experience is necessary for this age group, just a positive attitude. We provide training and equipment for our coaches.
Season practices are held twice a week in Los Alamos or White Rock beginning the week of May 31. The program will operate with a team focus on a skills and drill format. We will also play scrimmages. Kids also receive a cool uniform.
If you have questions about the program, please contact me at 505.662.3100 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
