YOUTH SPORTS

 

YOUTH BASKETBALL LEAGUE

The YMCA offers a Youth Basketball League each year. We have a fall season for girls, a winter season for boy and a spring season for boys and girls.  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 and Thursday. Girls season starts in October, Boys season in January and a Spring season for boys and girls 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.
