Summit YMCA YBL Hoops League Begins November 1: Registrants Receive a Free YBL Portrait Photo


The Summit Area YMCA’s Youth Basketball League (YBL) is a non-competitive, youth sports program for boys and girls grades K-3.  Participants learn the fundamentals of basketball in a safe and fun environment, while also developing social skills and building self-esteem. Energetic kids have a secure environment to expend their energy in a positive, healthy activity.

To ensure a safe and quality program, all YBL volunteer coaches go through thorough background checks and training so that children can be guided by strong role models. Children participating in the program are taught not only the game of basketball, but the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship. Throughout the program, coaches emphasize the Y core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.

YBL is a great social development program for home schooled children and children preparing for kindergarten, as the experiences and skills they learn in early age will guide them throughout their lives. "My son enjoys playing at YBL as he learns about teamwork and makes lots of new friends.” says Estella, mother of a YBL participant. “Most importantly he has tons of fun at games. As a mom, I can see the games make him stronger, more responsible and disciplined.”
