YMCA youth basketball registration continues

Open enrollment for Middlesex Family YMCA Youth Super Sport Co-ed Basketball is under way. The season will begin mid-January, with home games in the new Y gym and on the road against surrounding Y branches.

The season runs through March 10. Age brackets are 6-8, 9-11, 12-15.

“This coed basketball league focuses on the philosophy that ‘everyone plays, everyone wins,’ “ said Y program director Joe Hickey. “Your child will learn how to work in a team atmosphere as well as learn the basic skills of basketball such as shooting, passing, dribbling, offensive and defensive techniques through practice and games.”

Hickey said Youth Super Sports coaches build on and revisit the basic skills and rules. Some advanced concepts taught at this level are dribbling under pressure, stealing the ball, shooting from various positions, and receiving and passing quickly and accurately.

Good sportsmanship and character development are emphasized. Fitness concepts include fitness for the heart, lungs, and muscles, as well as flexibility and healthy eating.

To register, call 804-316-9191 or visit the Y in Hartfield.

Keep an eye out for “Basics of Boxing” coming soon, said Hickey.
