YMCA Basketball Academy (YBA)

Get in the game!

The YMCA Basketball Academy (YBA) is back! YBA is an instructional program designed for youngsters new to the sport of basketball as well as those who want to brush up on the rules, tactics, and skills, improve their game and most importantly, HAVE FUN! Each team is coached by volunteers and community members with a focus on participation, sportsmanship, and staying active.  Each team will have one evening practice and one game each week that will take place on Saturday either at our YMCA or Handy Middle School. We do our best to place kids on a team based on the school they attend.

For more information regarding the YBA season contact Zack Booth at zbooth@ymcabaycity.org or 989-895-8596

Safety

Safety remains our number one priority. By registering your child for our YBA program, you are agreeing to:

  • Completing the health screening before entry for participant and spectator.
  • Wear face coverings (no face shields) at all times. This is required for participants and spectators.
  • Due to capacity limitations set by MDHHS epidemic orders, parents and guardians will be allowed to spectate games and practices so long as spectators are limited to 1 healthy adult per player and maintain a distance of 6 feet from each other and other persons.
