YMCA Biddy Basketball

WE'RE BACK!  The 2021-22 Seaon Marks 50 Years of Youth Basketball Tradition!

New this season: Practices will be held at the Y or local schools during the week, and games will be played at the Lewiston Armory Saturday afternoons and Sunday Mornings. Scoll down for divisionsal information and on-line registration.

The YMCA Co-ed Biddy Basketball League serves Auburn, Lewiston, and the surrounding communities by affording boys and girls in grades 1–6 an opportunity to participate in an organized basketball program.

This Y program is designed to teach the fundamentals of basketball and to develop kids’ skills in dribbling, passing, and shooting in a team environment. The Biddy Basketball League offers three divisions: Rookie [grades 1-2], Pee Wee [grades 3-4] and Junior [grades 5-6]. Each division will conduct a player evaluation and draft, recognizing individual talent levels in order to provide the best possible scenario for equal play among teams.

Youth Basketball at the Y is more than just learning the game. Programming is based on character development and the Y’s core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility. The focus of the program is to have each child gain an understanding of the game, improve skill level, learn team play, build self-esteem, show good sportsmanship, and most of all have fun! Financial Assistance is available for qualifying families.
