Coaches will focus on creating a supportive and encouraging environment that will help them grow as players while they learn how fun basketball can be.

New this winter: partnership with the Huntington YMCA!

Our unique partnership with the YMCA brings so much more for the whole family. YMCA swim lessons build confidence and water safety skills for siblings or those enrolled in the basketball program. The Y also offers an opportunity for parents to work out, take a group exercise class or work with a trainer while your son or daughter is playing basketball. Child watch is available for families who are Y members. Contact Kyle Shaw at kshaw@ymcaboston.org for more information on Y membership and programs!
