Sports Academy

Welcome to the YMCA Sports Academy home page!

We are extremely honored that you have chosen the YMCA as your and your child’s recreational sports outlet.  We pledge to give you our best and to serve your child in sport, character and ministry.

At the YMCA Sports Academy our goal is two-fold…7th-9th Grade BBall League

First to provide top-notch sports training programs that are designed to assist each participant with the growth and development of their individual skill levels while teaching teamwork and sportsmanship.  Secondly, we strive to use the avenue of sports to teach and incorporate the character values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility, and faith.

This mission and message is accomplished by our sports staff in many forms through a variety of youth and adult sports programs and leagues.  So be sure to check out each sport category to find a program that fits you or your child’s passion…and on behalf of the YMCA and its sports staff, thanks for letting us serve you and your child through sport and ministry.

Due to staff availability our Friday Night Hoops program has been cancelled until further notice.  Stay tuned for updates for resuming program dates.  Thanks!


Due to the drop in temperature (and no heat in the old downtown YMCA) we will be moving our Fundamentals Basketball League Wednesday night practices (starting W, Dec 1) and our Competitive Basketball League Thursday night practices (starting TH, Dec 2) to our new Ascension St. Vincent YMCA (across the street from the old downtown YMCA) through the end of the season.  Games will remain at the Dunigan YMCA on Saturday’s.

We ask that you please drop your kids off in the Ascension St. Vincent YMCA gym (front desk staff will direct you) with our basketball staff.  Due to city ordinance we have restrictions with observers in the gym at this time, so we ask that parents drop their children off for practice…and return to the gym 5 minutes before the end of your normal practice time to pick your child up.  If you are looking for a place to wait, feel free to wait in the front lobby until practice ends.

Thanks in advance for helping us with this practice location adjustment.  The warmer facility temperature will be welcomed by all.  While in the new facility please take the opportunity to take a tour and see what the new facility has to offer for both parents and kids.
