Summer Basketball League

YES! is a dynamic program emphasizing teamwork and good sportsmanship. Each year more than 350 student athletes travel from over 100 towns and seven counties to participate in the YES! Summer Basketball League.

The program takes place in the summer from mid-June to mid-August. Each Saturday, teams will play and compete on the basketball court in an hour-long basketball game.

The program is open to boys and girls who are currently in 2nd – 8th grades. Coaches will have one scheduled practice, typically an hour, one day each week.
