Welcome to the online home of the Darien YMCA Basketball program. We offer year round basketball programs for children in Kindergarten through 12th grade. Our winter basketball programs have over 1500 participants!

For info on our seasonal basketball programs, click on the links on the left. For info on the other sports we offer, click on the "Darien Y Sports" link above.

See you in the gym!

Believe it or not, there are over 2000 people in the town of Darien that fall below the poverty line. That is double the amount of New Canaan. The Darien YMCA Sports Department wants to help those in need in our community this holiday season and is looking to team up with you!

In conjunction with the Darien Human Services Department we are going to assist gathering basic household items that can make a difference for local families. If we can help provide these items for them, they can spend their money on their bills and gifts for family members.

Below is a list of items we are collecting:
