Mercer Y Basketball League

Boys & Girls Grades 2-8

Athletes participating in the CO Ed grades 2-3 will start the season of working on fundamentals and skill work during the week and will play a refereed game amongst each other on the weekends. Teams will be mixed up week to week to create a strong sense of team skill sets and to learn to work with varying levels of skill play from different teammates.

 Players in the 3-8 divisions will compete in the Mercer Y League (Grades 3- 8) to strengthen team play and individual growth amongst Hopewell Valley and the surrounding Mercer County.  Games will be played against teams within Hopewell Valley and Mercer County to bring a positive blend of competitive and rec play. This league focuses on skill development, drills, team work, strategy and league play. Players registered in the league will also get a week of skills development training with YMCA staff and coaches, who have extensive knowledge in the game of basketball. In addition to the skill development trainings, players will attend assessments which will be held to assist in balancing each team. After assessments there will be a coach's draft to make fair and balanced teams. Coaches are dedicated to the kids and making the experience positive and fun!  Practices will be held once a week at a local gym with games on Saturday.
