Could your child be the next Steven Adams, LeBron James or Kobe Bryant? Find out by coming along to Mt Albert Community and Leisure Centre to find out about our Y-Basketball programme.
Our Y-Basketball Academy teaches ball-handling skills, drills, shooting and aiming, as well as an understanding of the rules of basketball in a non-competitive, fun environment. We aim to create confidence, teamwork and overall fitness of all players. Each week focuses on a different element of the game, working in small groups through modified games. Players work towards Inter- YMCA tournaments each year.
Our Junior League introduces players to competitive games, teamwork and enhances technique of skills learned in Basketball Academy. Each week, the players are separated into teams to play casual games throughout the class. These teams change each week. Any children younger than 8 years old who would like to join this class can be invited by their academy instructor. Players work towards Inter-YMCA tournaments each year.
