The Jr. Suns Competitive Youth Basketball League steps up the competition from the Recreational Youth Basketball Leagues, yet still provides a positive experience for all.
Some YMCAs require a skills evaluation prior to team placement. In addition to the regular season play, the competitive division ends with a single-elimination tournament. Each season the top team in each division from the East Valley meet up with the top team in each division from the West Valley for a valley-wide championship at the USA Airways Center!
We have leagues every season, each running about 2-3 months. Scroll to the bottom of this page to see what we have to offer.
Winter: December – February
Spring: March – May
Summer: June – August
Fall: September – November
Your child(ren) will be placed on a team and will have at least one practice during the week and a game on the weekend.
Youth learn new skills, make new friends, develop essential character traits, and set individual and team goals. This improves self-confidence, promotes diversity, increases self-esteem, and improves physical condition. The positive time with family and friends in this environment strengthens our communities. Youth Sports puts emphasis on healthy relationships between adults and youth as well as family, with a goal to build social skills and sport skills with all participants for the future.
