Panthers Basketball Overview

Everyone can join in the game!

Panthers Basketball is an extensive YMCA basketball program for children and youth ages 5 to 16 who are interested in skills development, teamwork, and a recreational or competitive basketball program.

Our highly popular YMCA Panthers Basketball programs ensure all youth have the opportunity to learn, play and develop their basketball skills at a variety of levels, regardless of their social, economic or educational standing. The program focuses on skill development, teamwork, and sportsmanship in a safe environment.

We aim to ensure that every participant has an experience that is positive and fosters a sense of belonging and the development of valuable life skills through basketball. Participants are also encouraged to keep up their schoolwork and build confidence and character. Confidence is developed through weekly interactions with peers and coaches.

Our program offers a full range of basketball developments programs from beginner to rep teams spanning ages 5 to 16. Registration opens every August and runs from October to April.

At the YMCA, youth and adult members are welcome to either drop in and join a pickup game, or become part of a more formal basketball program.
