YMCA Youth Basketball Sign-up Underway


Registration is now open for the 1st through 6th grade YMCA Basketball Program. The format will be a little different this year:

1st and 2nd grade remains co-ed; 3rd and 4th / 5th and 6th will be girls and boys teams only.

Teams will be assigned based on the elementary school where the players attend.

Homeschoolers and out-of-district students may choose the location most convenient for them.

Practices kick off twice a week after Thanksgiving at local schools. Games will be Saturday mornings in January and February with locations to be announced.

Volunteer coaches and assistant coaches are needed and will be taught coaching techniques by Los Alamos High School coaches in line with middle school and high school programs.

This is an attempt to build a strong and consistent basketball foundation, improve skills at a younger age, and help the transition into upper level play.

Season: Nov. 26 – Feb. 28

Registration: Through Nov. 16

Cost: $95/ $65 for Y Members

Financial assistance is available and is provided by the United Way of Northern New Mexico and the YMCA Annual Strong Kids Campaign. Applications are available at the Y.
