Junior Basketball League in North Shore

Our future champions

The Y (formerly known as YMCA) North Shore have been running school basketball for over 25 years. We have had many Tall Blacks and Tall Ferns begin their illustrious careers right here in our stadium!

Our Junior Basketball Leagues give children the opportunity to practice and develop their basketball in a fun, safe, and supportive environment with fair and fun games. Our experienced referee/coaches help teams to refine their skills while learning the rules of the game as they play. Children play in boys, girls or mixed teams.

Designated Coaches

If your team is unable to secure a coach for the season, we can provide a designated coach for them. Our coaches are experienced and have a passion for basketball. We encourage team play and guide teams to play to the best of their ability.

Register your team by contacting your School Sports or Basketball Coordinator, or reach out to the Leagues Coordinator at kylie.heihei@ymcaauckland.org.nz

Thursdays Under 10s and Under 12s Teams

Under 10s teams will enjoy the focus being on on skill development and FUN games.

Our Under 12s League is about getting kids ready for the next level of basketball. They will learn to understand and apply the rules of the game while developing good habits on and off the court with our experienced referee/coaches. We focus on fair play along with individual and team sportsmanship through recognition awards.
