We want kids to learn, grow, and succeed!

And at the Oakland Y, our youth programs aim to do just that! Learn more about our Fall Youth Programs here!

Youth Basketball

Youth basketball at Downtown Oakland YMCA is a fun and exciting way for kids ages 3-13 to make new friends and stay active. Designed to teach individual skill development and teamwork, players are encouraged to improve their skills through in-house scrimmages and games with other local YMCAs.
