Hamilton Area YMCA

Leagues

The Y is the jumping off point for many kids to learn about the importance of physical activity — and for developing the healthy habits they’ll carry with them throughout their lives.

The benefits of joining a Youth Sports League at the Hamilton Area YMCA are far greater than just physical health. Whether it’s gaining the confidence that comes from learning a new skill or building the positive relationships that lead to good sportsmanship and teamwork, participating in sports at the YMCA is about building a healthy, active and contributing member of the community from the inside out.

Youth sports at the YMCA teach kids more than how to score goals, make baskets or hit doubles into the gap; they teach character and social skills for future leaders. Y leagues aren’t just for kids, either — we also offer pick-up and competitive leagues for adults.

The YMCA philosophy of youth sports:

  • Everyone plays — We do not use tryouts to select the best players. No one is cut from a team.
  • Safety first — Coaches and officials make sure all equipment and facilities are safe.
  • Fair play — The Y is about playing by the rules and showing respect for all involved.

Our youth basketball league focuses on good sportsmanship and instruction. The season runs 8 - 10 weeks with all games scheduled in one of our climate-controlled gymnasiums.

Practices begin in mid-November. Each team is assigned a week night, time and local practice location. Games begin the weekend of December 1 and continue through mid-February.

To ensure balance among teams, teams will be set based off evaluations, not requests. All participants must attend one of the evaluations to be placed on a team. Evaluations dates will be posted in February.

OPR is a pre-order service that allows parents to place their orders online prior to photo day. ​​(Note: this link will expire at the end of your final photo day for this season, anyone wishing to order photos must do so on or before photo day and bring an e-ticket with that order to photo day)

OPR is the easiest way to order photos and offers families advantages that aren't available on our traditional forms, such as the option to "Build Your Own Package" and a discount if placing three or more orders. It will help cut down on possible errors and ensure a smoother photo day as more families will come prepared.

Youth Sports Team Sponsorship

The Hamilton Area YMCA makes every effort to give every child an opportunity to participate in sports. In a typical year, we offer 10 leagues with a combined participation of more than 1,600 young athletes.

Sponsorships help to provide these participants with a uniform shirt and a trophy, which ultimately helps to keep the costs of the league down for participants. Sponsorships are always greatly valued by everyone involved in the league. In return for your generosity, your business’s name will be printed on the back of a team’s jersey and you will receive a plaque featuring your team’s photo. 

Fee:
Youth Soccer and Basketball sponsorships are $125 per team
Youth Baseball sponsorships are $150 per team

Additional teams in the same league and season can be sponsored for a reduced rate of $75 per team.

Please click here for more information on being a Youth Team sponsor.
