Friday Night Hoops

Friday Hoops is a great alternative to kids (1st-9th Grade) hanging around the house and for parents to get an evening out.  Bring them to the YMCA for three hours of basketball fun.

For three hours, participants are divided up and placed on teams that play in structured basketball games in different basketball age divisions.  Groups are divided by age, then divided into balanced teams (to the best of our ability without seeing them play).  Games last twenty minutes with automatic sub rotations.  When your child’s team is not on the court, they will have the opportunity to hang out with friends and teammates.  Friday Night Hoops is a great way to spend your weekend, make friends, and get in some runs with some great basketball play.

  • YMCA Sports Academy basketball staff will be onsite to oversee play and behavior during the program.

Note: This is not a league.  This is more like structured pick up play for kids. Sign up online the week of or pay $10 in-person the day of (per child) and we will the rest.  It’s 3 hours of basketball fun for kids.  We provide everything.
