Youth Basketball

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our classes/programs are pending and subject to change. Read more here about our COVID-19 preparedness. Stay connected! Click here for a list of our virtual resources.

At the MJCC, we don't just teach basketball skills, we illustrate the value of basketball as a lifetime fitness activity. We help young people learn responsibility, the importance of working as a team member, and how to perform as a leader. Our basketball programs provide our youth an opportunity to play an organized, positive, and motivational environment.
