NO ONE TOPS OUR LEGACY - BASKETBALL PROGRAMS
Did you know that basketball was invented by the Y in 1891 at the International YMCA Training School?
Dr. James Naismith was given the challenge of creating a game that could be played indoors during the cold winter months. Hanging simple peach baskets and using a soccer ball, Naismith created the game of basketball and wrote the first 13 rules of the game. Find more with the YMCA of Central Kentucky!
Youth Basketball Leagues
From building stronger skills to gaining self-confidence, basketball at the Y is about more than just the game, it is about building the whole child, from the inside out. Trained coaches focus on building players core skills such as ball handling, defense, offense, rebounding, shooting, conditioning, and more. All levels are welcome and will be separated by age for leagues and skill level for our season-ending tournaments in those leagues.
