Introducing the Y’s New 3-on-3 Youth Basketball Leagues

More than 100 years ago, the YMCA invented the sport of basketball. Now, the YMCA of Metro Chicago is launching brand new 3-on-3 youth basketball leagues at 12 centers across Chicagoland.

Want to increase your basketball skills and compete against your friends in a fun but competitive league? The 3-on-3 format helps you gain skills faster since each player gets more touches on the ball, gives you more space to try new moves and practice new skills, and gives you more chances to learn footwork as you cover more distance with fewer players. All teams will play 10 games during a 6-week period.

Teams for boys and girls between ages 12 and 18 will play 10 games during a 6-week period, culminating with a tournament where teams from multiple centers will face off against one another to determine an ultimate champion. Teams will practice one night per week in addition to games. For more information and to register online, click on your nearest center below. Cost, start date, and age range vary by center.
