At the Y, we believe all children should have the chance to learn healthy lifestyles, grow in leadership skills, and thrive among their peers. Our Youth Sports program approaches that belief in three ways.
The West Cook YMCA offers team and individual sport opportunities for children in grade school and high school. Year-round basketball opportunities include Youth Basketball League & High School League, and more. Our 1-on-1 basketball Training allows for youth to connect with basketball coaches who will turn your weaknesses into strengths, improve your fundamental skills, and increase your confidence on the court.
A great way and a fun way for kids to prepare their self to develop basic fundamentals skills. This program is to design to teach participants basketball basic skills which are passing, dribbling, shooting, and defense and must importantly team work. Classes are on Saturdays morning in the large gym at 10:15am-11:00am. All participants will receive a Biddy Ballers West Cook YMCA T-shirt.
Little Kickers is to help children between the ages 3-8 years old. They will learn the basic skills of soccer including passing, trapping, dribbling, running and moving with the ball under control and having fun with the instructor.
“Calling all boys and girls”, ages 6-13 years old: Come and develop sportsmanship, skill work, hard work, team work, FUNdamentals most importantly having fun. The league is divided by division levels. Everyone will play. Players will receive weekly games played on Saturdays, one-hour of practice session once a week.

Build on fundamental skills though high intensity, challenging drills for intermediate to elite athletes to take their game to the next level. Skills include game time situations, making moves off the dribble, and finishing at the basket. Also, skills and drills sessions are great for players who are going to be involved in our Youth Basketball League (YBL), or for any player who wants to improve his/her basketball skills.
