YMCA Spokane Competitive & Recreation Basketball Leagues

The YMCA Recreational Youth Basketball program allows your child to play without the pressure of competition so they can focus on building skills and teamwork. We offer separate divisions for boys and girls. League play consists of 8 games taking place on Monday & Friday nights and/or Saturdays. Regular season games are played at the HUB and the Warehouse. The YMCA forms teams by grade and school. (Coaches will contact their players with practice days, times and locations within 48 hours of the coaches meeting). Volunteer coaches are needed. There is an optional tournament at the end of the season for the 5th – 8th grade teams. Coaches meeting will be on October 3rd. End of guaranteed registration is on October 3rd. End of Non-Guaranteed registration is on October 12th.

Team Registration Only. This league is designed to be more competitive than the YMCA recreational league, yet still provides a positive experience for all. Coaches register their team, schedule their own practices and teams provide their own uniforms. Teams will play 8 games during the season (unless forces out of our control occur) and end in a seeded, single elimination tournament. Regular season games are played on Mondays and/or Wednesdays at the Warehouse and/or HUB beginning the last week of November. Tournament games can be played on Mon/Wed.

Volunteer Coaches: All YMCA sports league coaches are 100% volunteers and we are always looking for great coaches in all sports. If you are interested in joining our team as a volunteer coach, please contact us at 509 777 9622.

State Middle School Basketball Championships @ HUB Sports Center

On the weekend of March 115-17, the top BOYS & GIRLS teams in the state will meet in the Spokane Valley to battle it out for the Washington Middle School Basketball Championship. After a long regular season playing against other teams in your league or area, the State Basketball Championship offers teams the shot to compete against fresh faces from all corners of the state. This is not your ordinary league tournament, but rather the chance of a lifetime for all kids… “Remember the time we went to State!?!”

Championship Overview

♦  Two Championship divisions, School (based on high school boundary) and Club (non-school teams). Both divisions offer exciting competition for Boys and Girls grades 4-8.
♦  All teams play a minimum of 4 games. Some will play 5 games.
♦  Play begins as early as 4pm Friday and latest Sunday games tip off at 3:30pm.
♦  Entry fees are $400/team.  Early sign up & multiple team discounts are available.
♦  Awards for teams and for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in both divisions

There’s more! Here’s what you’ll get when we See You at STATE!

We have teams traveling from all over Washington: the Puget Sound area, Olympic Peninsula, Southwestern WA, Tri Cities, Yakima and Bellingham. Of course, there’ll be some hometown teams representing Spokane also!
♦  Partner hotels and resorts offering discounted rates.

Breakthrough Basketball Skills Camp

We’re pleased to announce that we have arranged for Chris Oliver to come to Spokane, Washington to run a 3-day skill development camp for high school, and middle school players.

What Will Players Get out of the Camp?

Here’s a brief summary of what you’ll get out of this 3-day camp…

Improve Your Ball handling

Considerable time will be spent on your dribbling and passing skills — allowing you to reduce turnovers, handle any game situation, improve decision making, and improve overall ball handling skill.

Improve Your 1on1 Moves

You will learn how to beat your defender off the dribble, when to attack, how to create space, and how to develop a more explosive first move. In today’s game, so many players misuse the dribble. They use it and lose their advantage against the defense. You will learn how to effectively use the dribble and cover more space with fewer dribbles at a faster pace.

Improve Confidence

During the camp, Coach Oliver will teach the mental aspects of the game, help you build confidence, and become more aggressive. You will learn how to train your mind not just physical skills.

Improve Decision Making

A major emphasis of the camp will be to improve decision making using Chris Oliver’s BDT (Basketball Decision Training) methods. You will improve your ability to think and act in decisive ways. The unique decision making drills and skills will help you perform under pressure at the highest level.

Improve Shooting

Shooting is a critical skill to be an effective player. You’ll learn Chris Oliver’s keys to effective shooting and experience a variety of shooting drills to help you improve accuracy and ability to score points.

Become More Aggressive

One of the biggest benefits to the BDT training camp is the development of a confident attacking mindset. The drills, tools, and knowledge you’ll receive at the camp will help you become more aggressive and assertive in games.

Improve Speed & Agility

Throughout the camp, Coach Oliver will integrate speed and agility drills to help you improve defense, your first step, and overall agility.

Finishing Moves

With a ball in your hands throughout most of the camp, you’ll get opportunities to improve your finishing moves and ability to finish at the basket. You’ll learn what to do with the ball after you beat your defender and how to score more points.

Campers will leave with a better sense of self and a better understanding of what it takes to be successful in basketball and, in turn, every aspect of life. We will address technical, tactical and applied aspects of basketball that will help a player develop their game beyond the level they are currently at.

What is BDT (Basketball Decision Training)?

In this 3-day camp you will improve your overall skills like ball handling and shooting — however a big emphasis of the camp will be “decision making”…

Players will learn when to pass, when to shoot, when to dribble, when to drive, angles to take, how to be more aggressive, and more.

The BDT methods will:

  • Train the mind of players to make faster decisions within the practice environment
  • Improve the ability to think and act in decisive ways
  • Develop a confident attacking mindset
  • Learn how to train your mind not just physical skills
  • Identification, cause and correction of the most common fundamental errors
  • Knowledge of the skills necessary to catch, shoot, dribble and attack on offense
  • Game-like understanding of the application of perimeter offensive skills

During the camp, Coach Oliver will use decision training drills and rhythm clapping to enhance the teaching of basketball’s most important offensive skills – shooting, passing, dribbling and 1 on 1 moves. Combining decision training with rhythmic clapping enhances the learning experience for the player due to:

  • Increases in motivation
  • Stimulation of creativity
  • Development of an awareness of basketball rhythm
  • Repetition of all the fundamentals without getting bored
  • Work is done with effortless concentration
  • Development and refinement of basketball skills at game speed
  • Awareness of the continual possibility of improvement

Coaches will promote a fun and safe environment that encourages positive and purposeful learning experiences.

Unique Camp that Gets Results

As you can see, this is a unique camp that will be unlike other camps you’ve been to. The use of BDT methods, and Chris Oliver’s unique style, makes for a VERY intense yet fun atmosphere.

We have chosen this camp and Chris Oliver because of his quality training methods and ability to get results.

More than other traditional camps, this camp will provide you with the drills and skills to continue your development beyond your time at camp. BDT drills will be used to build the ideal camp learning environment. You will learn by doing. We will teach you to consistently and deliberately work to improve your performance.

Who is the Camp For?

The camp is for boys and girls from 7th grade to 12th grade.

This is for SERIOUS basketball players that want to get better. You can play games anywhere, so we focus on things you can’t just pick up anywhere. We focus on developing skills that will make you better!

Coaches that want to learn and pick up new drills can also observe for a small fee (coaches can find more info below).

Where is the Camp?

The camp is located at The Estancia High School in Costa Mesa, CA.
