The YMCA offers a Youth Basketball League each year for grades 1-6. YBL is a fun program, which emphasizes basic basketball skills, sportsmanship, team play and participation. As in all YMCA sports, winning is downplayed, and no league standings are kept. All players will get an equal amount of playing time. The volunteer coaches and referees work hard to make YBL a fun learning experience.We will try to hold all practices and games in the Grand Forks Schools. We reserve the right to change rosters to maintain competitive balance. The season is held on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. A complete practice and game schedule will be distributed at the start of each program. Spring YBL starts in April.



YBL is in cooperation with the GF Fastbreak Club.

Fastbreak Club Mission:

To provide a positive structured environment for active participation in basketball, while allowing individual athletes to develop their skills and abilities to the highest possible level.
