BASKETBALL

The YMCA invented basketball. In fact, the first game was played in 1891 in a YMCA gym thanks to the imagination of James Naismith, a Y PE teacher.

Boulder Valley basketball programs for pre-k through 8th grade are held at the Arapahoe Y in Lafayette, the Mapleton Y in Boulder and at BVSD schools.

Jr. Buffs Basketball

YMCA JR. BUFFS BASKETBALL

YMCA and CU Athletics are pleased to team up to offer YMCA Jr. Buffs Basketball. Participants of the YMCA Jr. Buffs sports programs will receive the benefit of the expertise of both organizations. For each YMCA Jr. Buffs sport, CU has a team, so you can be sure to get the best youth sports experience possible.

Kinderhoops (PreK-Kindergarten)

Before your child can dunk, they must learn to dribble. Before they can land a three-pointer, they must learn to pass. Before they can realize their hoop dreams, they need the fundamentals. Kinderhoops is an ideal introduction to basketball — focusing on basic skills, rules and mechanics — in a fun clinic-style program full of energy-burning games and activities. Players develop athleticism and hand-eye coordination and prepare for rec basketball.

Does your child dream of shooting like Stephen Curry? Or playing defense like Kobe Bryant?
