New in Sports!

Sharpen your skills in December with our Basketball Skills and Drills 6-session clinic that focuses on the fundamental skills of basketball for all ages. During this clinic, your child will run through various age-appropriate drills to build upon the skills learned in the fall league and prepare him or her for the winter league. The clinic begins December 1.

Our Fall/Winter Classic All-City Intramural Travel Basketball League will begin December 15. Participants will play games at other YMCA locations throughout the Indianapolis area. There will be weekly practices and Saturday games.
