YMCA Thunder Basketball

YMCA Thunder Basketball

From James Naismith’s invention of basketball at the Y in 1891 to today, the Y has a rich tradition in sports played around the globe. We nurture the potential of youth through sports programming by strengthening character, engaging families and building lasting relationships. We are pleased to partner with the Oklahoma City Thunder to further our mission within our youth basketball league, now called the YMCA Thunder Basketball League.

Our Developmental League for youth basketball will have an  emphasis on the development and understanding of the game of basketball. Youth basketball officials will be more lenient and assist in helping the child learn the rules as they play basketball games. The season consists of 8 games. The Developmental League is open for children ages 3-18. For ages 5 & up, our youth basketball league is gender specific. Age groups may be combined, depending on registration.

The Spirit League has been developed to provide a place for players and teams with advanced skills a place to play at the YMCA against competition of the same development. This league will be closely officiated by certified referees. We will continue to hold everyone whom participates to the highest character standards as outlined in the Players Pledge, Coaches Creed, and Parents Code of Conduct. The season consists of 8 games and an end of season tournament. The Spirit League is open for children ages 8-12. This league is gender specific. Age groups may be combined, depending on registration.
