"When we first signed our son up for Esports, I thought - it's just going to be another place for him to play video games. What I saw happening during the session was WONDERFUL! My son, who normally doesn't connect with others, couldn't wait to go to practice so he could interact with this new friends. Some of the other players even asked him to be their coach. I can truly say - Esports at the Y has helped my son gain confidence and make new friends." - Tom

Basketball was invented by James Naismith at the #YMCA Training School in Massachusetts in 1891! He was trying to find a sport for students to play indoors during the winter. The first game was actually played with a soccer ball and two peach baskets used as goals! Basketball made its first appearance at the Olympic games in St. Louis in 1904 as a demonstration sport. #LetTheGamesBegin

Youth sports provide youth an opportunity to get the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity a day. A 2020 study found that 60% of American children had inadequate levels of cardiorespiratory fitness, putting them at increased risk of chronic diseases at younger ages (American Heart Association, 2020).
