All Registration ends on Saturday, Sept 17th at 6:00 p.m. and all players registered after this time will be placed on a waiting list, they will be put on a team as space available.

Youth Recreational League


This program provides the opportunity to learn fundamental basketball skills. All participants are given the opportunity to play equal amounts during games. The hoop heights and basketball sizes change as the players become older, which allow for easier progression. Teams will practice once during the week and play a game on Saturday’s.  READ MORE  or REGISTER NOW


Youth Competitive League

Sponsored by Alaska McDonald’s


This program provides the next level of youth basketball in a safe and competitive environment. Sign ups are taken by teams. Players who are not associated with a team can attend the scheduled try outs and be picked up by a team and in some cases become part of a newly formed team.  READ MORE





Volunteers are vital to the YMCA, without them, we wouldn’t be able to meet the needs of the kids, families, and adults who live in the Anchorage community. Annually we have over 900 children in basketball who need you and appreciate your time & talent given. We have a need to fill over 100 coaching positions every season. Thank you for considering the YMCA as a place to donate your precious time, please take a few minutes to give us some information on line or in person about yourself.  READ MORE
