Join a Youth Basketball Team (ages 4-11) at the YMCA

We wonder whether the inventor could have known all the good things that would come from basketball when he invented it for the YMCA in 1891. Dr. James Naismith invented the great game of basketball at the International YMCA Training School in Springfield, Mass. Maybe you learned to play basketball at the Y?

With an emphasis on skill development and sportsmanship, the Y offers families an environment where everyone plays and develops.

Enrollment for Youth Basketball Leagues — which starts the weekend of November 30 in Franklin and Foxborough and January 13 in North Attleboro — is now open. Practices will be designed to meet the needs of each coed group, with age appropriate drills and games. Enrollment in the eight week program includes a team t-shirt, practices, and five games. 

Hour-long assignments by age are as follows:
• Saturdays at the Franklin Y: 4 years 10:15 AM; 5–6 years 11:30 AM; 7–8 years 12:45 PM
• Saturdays at the Foxboro Y: 4 years 10:00 AM; 5–6 years 11:15 AM -or- 12:30 PM -or- 3:00 PM;
7-8 years 1:45 PM -or- 3:00 PM
• Fridays at the Foxboro Y: 9-11 years 6:00 PM
• Sundays at the in North Attleboro Y: 4 years 10:30 AM; 5–6 years 11:30 AM; 7–8 years 12:30 PM

This youth program is a great method for developing skills, while experiencing all the sportsmanship and fun that comes from being on a team; it is open to all area residents. Cost is $84 for Hockomock Area YMCA Youth members and $126 for Program members. Family-type Hockomock Area YMCA members receive the leagues experience at no cost, other than uniform fee of $10.

Beginner Cheerleading for ages 6-9 will also run at the North Attleboro Y, giving girls the opportunity to learn routines and cheer at games. For details and to learn about parent/child basketball class for 3 year olds and cheerleading prep class, please visit
