Youth Basketball League

Youth Basketball League

Join Sumter’s long standing tradition of Youth Church League Basketball at the Y. This is a great opportunity for boys and girls to learn teamwork and athletic skills while building character and Christian values.

Learning teamwork and building athletic skills in any sport can help your child develop who they will become years down the road. What fun it is for them to obtain these goals while playing their favorite sport of basketball! Your child will get to work out with other players to develop their knowledge of teamwork, discipline and the basic fundamentals needed to be successful in this game and in life. They will have the  opportunity to reunite with old friends while also making some new friends.
