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.
Rookie Division Evaluation & Draft: 2019-20 Date TBD
Pee Wee Division Evaluation & Draft: 2019-20 Date TBD
Junior Division Evaluation & Draft: 2019-20 Date TBD
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.
Boys and girls in grade 1 & 2. Teams hold practice once a week at the Y (time-slots are slated for 6-7pm). Practices begin the following week of the Rookies Evaluation & Draft. Games are played Sunday mornings at the Y starting at 8am. The 13 game season comes to a close early February.
Boys and girls in grades 3 & 4. Pee Wee teams hold practice once a week at the Y (time-slots are slated for 5-6pm). Practices begin the following week of the Pee Wee Evaluation & Draft. Games will be played Saturday mornings starting at 8:00am. The 13 game season comes to a close early February.

Travel Basketball is offered in addition to the Y (in-house) Biddy Basketball League for both Pee Wee and Junior Divisions for both Girls & boys[Grades 3-6].
