basketball kids ymcaCLARION, Pa. – The YMCA has announced a Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten Basketball Clinic will be held at the new YMCA at 499 Mayfield Road, Clarion, Pa.

The Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten Basketball Program gets kids excited about basketball while providing essential building blocks for future success.  Most importantly, your child will have fun while learning.

The YMCA promotes the following:

  • Fundamentals – Teaching basic basketball skill development in a positive, encouraging and fun environment is rewarding for all involved
  • Hard Work – Emphasizing how to compete – with a focus on working hard and competing to the best of your ability – is more important than the outcome of games won and lost
  • Respect – Exhibiting a positive attitude toward players, coaches, parents, officials and teammates is how we honor the game and each other
  • Sportsmanship – Playing the right way, centered on fair, ethical and honest competition
  • Teamwork – Working together in a supportive manner for a common goal fosters positive social and personal development
  • Healthy Living – Exercising regularly benefits both mind and body – leading to better health outcomes, greater energy levels, and enhanced classroom performance

Youth Basketball can help your child develop confidence, have fun, and make new friends. Youth sports programs run by the YMCA make a great foundation for future growth in sports, learning sportsmanship, and acquiring the skills needed to succeed.

Basketball Clinics allow participants to learn dribbling, passing, shooting, and more. All children will have equal involvement.

Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten Basketball will be held April 27, May 4, May 11, and May 18.

Registration is ongoing. Call or stop by the YMCA to register.  Online registration is also available.  Clinics will be held at the YMCA between 7:45 am and 11:45 am.  Exact times will be sent by email after registration.
