Summer Sports Registration Is Open!

At the Y, sports and recreational activities are something special. Friendly competition (even with yourself), lots of variety, and a supportive environment make team sports and recreation fun again. This combination also makes for a healthier lifestyle. Financial assistance is available.

Summer sports will include a weeknight practice and a weeknight game. Our supportive VOLUNTEER coaches will help your child grow personally as they strengthen their skills, establish work ethic, create lasting friendships, and have fun! Academy and Rookie Sports programs will include one weekday session with a YMCA coach.

Family-Friendly Registration Process
Basketball League ages 5-8, Basketball Academy and T-Ball

Our registration process will allow you to choose the practice day and time that is most convenient for your family. The practice day and time that you choose at registration will determine your team. Early registration is strongly encouraged as each team has a set number of participants and once a practice day and time has reached its player capacity that team will be full.

Skills Evaluations and Coaches' Draft
Basketball ages 9 and up

For basketball ages 9 and up, the Y will host pre-season evaluations and formal coaches' drafts. All participants must attend one evaluation as teams will be drafted by coaches using the results from these evaluations.

Players must be available to practice on the nights listed. No requests will be considered. Team Assignment emails will be sent no later than Thursday, June 8. For more information, click below.



This is an online sports platform that is utilized for simplifying communication among coaches, players and YMCA sports staff. PLAYERSPACE is where you will find your roster, practice and game schedules, as well as contact information for those on your team. A PLAYERSPACE account will be created for the Primary Person on your DAXKO account after registration is complete (unless you have one prior with the same primary email on file). You will be emailed your account log-in credentials two weeks prior to the season and emailed your team assignment the Thursday prior to the season start date. (Be sure to check your spam folder as emails often go to spam initially.) PLAYERSPACE will be used for basketball, soccer, flag football, t-ball/baseball and volleyball.
