Largest Junior Basketball League in the Country
Still on basketball, the largest junior basketball (miniball) league in the country is just getting under way at the YMCA. Close to 100 teams will be competing weekly across ten different grades.
The league has been the launch pad for many outstanding basketball players, including current internationals Tom Abercrombie, Kirk Penney and Micaela Cocks (pictured).
YMCA Gymnastics Classes for Kids
The YMCA has some great gymnastics classes for pre school and school aged children.
Children (2-12 years) are taught a wide range of gymnastic and agility skills. Progress is monitored by a series of graded cards and awards.
Adult Indoor Soccer Leagues
Over 50 teams are playing in the weekly adult indoor soccer leagues at the YMCA but we still have places available in the premier indoor soccer league in Auckland. Indoor soccer is a great way for groups of friends to get together for a weekly exercise stint.
