*** Urgently looking to hire a Tennis Instructor ***



YMCA Sports Programs help children become not only better players, but better people as well.  The basketball clinics will develop the skills of young players while building character and sportsmanship.  They will also develop a foundation for future excellence by developing dribbling, shooting, defense & passing skills through challenging activities beneficial in high level sports.  Participants can be of all skill levels and abilities.  Each athlete will enjoy the mix of games, activities, and competitions!   The goal is to teach young athletes proper techniques and fundamentals while providing a fun environment to learn in! 

*** An exception will most likely be made even if your child does not fit the age level. ***

*** These are smaller group lessons so spots may be limited! ***
