What to Bring for First-time Players

Are you new to the Y’s basketball league? When playing basketball with the Y, no additional equipment is required. However, there are some things you may want to bring to practices and games.

  • Comfortable clothing: Wear comfortable, breathable clothes when coming to practice or playing a game. If you’re wearing a uniform, make sure it fits well and is ready for the court.
  • Basketball shoes: Any type of athletic shoe can be worn as long as it’s comfortable and fits properly. However, basketball shoes are designed specifically for basketball courts. These shoes provide optimal traction and help protect the floors.
  • Water bottle: It’s important to stay hydrated when you’re practicing or playing a game, so make sure that you pack a water bottle (or two).
  • A positive attitude: One of the most important things to bring with you is a can-do, positive attitude. Basketball is meant to be fun. Practice good sportsmanship both on and off the court.

5 Benefits of Joining an Adult or Youth Basketball League

Basketball is good for players of all ages. You'll forge long-lasting friendships, learn teamwork and be able to advance your skills at your local YMCA. In fact, you might not realize that basketball was actually invented by the YMCA. When you join our league, you’ll benefit from: 

  1. Exercise and Endurance. Exercise doesn’t have to be boring. Basketball is a great full-body workout that teaches adults and kids how to push their limits while building muscle and endurance.

  2. Coordination. Basketball requires you to develop hand-eye coordination that allows you to pass, shoot and dribble down the court. The younger the player, the more they’ll benefit from the added coordination.

  3. Socialization. Team members build long-lasting friendships and have a sense of being in the community. All players will develop social skills that are beneficial on and off the court.

  4. Agility. Speed and quick reaction times help you win games. Basketball helps players hone their skills and become more agile on the court.

  5. Adaption. Along with agility, players must learn how to adapt to situations quickly and strategize on the court.

Basketball is one of the sports that requires the least equipment and is easy to play all year long. Join us in an adult or youth basketball league today.
