Learn to Play!

The South Shore YMCA Youth Basketball Program focuses on teaching all children the fundamentals of basketball and teamwork. We inspire children to never give up on themselves, and always work to become their better selves in sports, and in life. Above all, we focus on having fun, good sportsmanship, and playing as a team.
