Junior Basketball League North Shore


Our future champions

YMCA North Shore have been running school basketball for over 25 years.  We have had many Tall Blacks and Tall Ferns begin their illustrious careers right here in our stadium!

Our Junior Basketball Leagues give children the opportunity to practice and develop their basketball in a fun, safe, and supportive environment with fair and fun games. Our experienced referee/coaches help teams to refine their skills while learning the rules of the game as they play. Children play in boys, girls or mixed teams.

Designated Coaches

If your team is unable to secure a coach for the season, we can provide a designated coach for them.  Our coaches are experienced and have a passion for basketball. We encourage team play and guide teams to play to the best of their ability.

Register your team by contacting your School Sports or Basketball Coordinator.
