Basketball is a fantastic way to stay in shape and improve cardiovascular health. It’s a full-body workout that can help burn calories while you have fun. Available year round in our quality facility, there’s no reason to wait! 

Basketball is a team sport with two teams of five players each trying to score by shooting the ball through hoops at each end of a rectangle court and elevated above the ground. The court is divided into two main sections by the mid-court line. Games are divided into four quarters of varying length on the level of play. At the Y, basketball competitions use a 2 x 18 minute halves format. The ball is moved down the court towards the basket by passing or dribbling by the team with the ball called the defence. When the game ends, the team with the most points wins.
