Crazy About Basketball – Youth Basketball League (Ages/Grades: Grades 1-4)
Crazy about Basketball?? So are we! Basketball was created by James Naismith at a YMCA way back in 1891 and has been a huge part of our sport program here at the Eau Claire YMCA. That’s why we want you to join us for another season of Y basketball.
Our league is designed to help teach the fundamentals and skills, as well as the rules of the game and both teamwork and sportsmanship. It’s not all about what the scoreboard says at the end of the game, because here at the Eau Claire YMCA, everybody plays; everybody wins!
Participants sign up individually and are then placed on a team according to where they go to school. All games are officiated by both new and experienced WIAA certified officials. They too will do their part to help teach the players the rules of the games.

All games are officiated by certified WIAA officials. Games will be on the short courts with two 20 minutes halves, running clock.
