Kelowna Family YMCA

Ages 5–7

For parents of young players there is one guiding principle: If you want your young player to develop a love for basketball, he or she must first develop a passion for the game. To do that, he or she must enjoy the game and see basketball, particularly at a young age, as an activity that comes with a smile. The Jr. NBA program will focus on the fundamental movement skills of running, jumping, throwing, catching, balance, agility, and co-ordination.

We hope to also build a community of league organizers, parents and coaches committed to minor basketball. Please contact the Child & Youth department (250-419-9622 ext. 222) for volunteer opportunities and learn how you can get involved.

You may only register for one time slot per week. Sessional registration required.
An ePACT online medical consent form is required for registration.
Jr. NBA does not run on statutory holidays.
