Registration is currently underway for the Greater Joliet Area YMCA’s Youth Basketball Leagues. Open to area youth in grades pre-K to 8, co-ed leagues are forming now in the Joliet, Plainfield, Troy and Morris communities.

The registration deadline for Morris leagues is today, Saturday, Nov. 10. Co-ed teams for ages K-6 are being formed. Two-week group drills will begin Nov. 27, and weekly team practices will begin the week of Jan. 8. Games will be played on Saturdays beginning Jan. 12.

The Y Youth Sports program maximizes the positive effects of playing sports by emphasizing healthy competition and promoting teamwork. The Y focuses on the life lessons that can be learned from sports and coaches strive to instill a positive self-image in each player. Most importantly, in the YMCA league, everyone plays and everyone wins.
