House Hoops

MEMBERS CAN REGISTER SEPTEMBER 26 AT 10:00 a.m.
NON-MEMBERS CAN REGISTER OCTOBER 10 AT 10:00 a.m. 


The Darien YMCA House Hoops program is the largest and most prominent program that the Sports Department offers. The fun filled program is offered for players who are in grades 3rd through 12th. During the season all players will be taught the necessary skills in order to learn and develop the fundamentals of basketball. After an exciting regular season of House Hoops, each player will participate in the town wide double elimination playoff tournament which is attended by hundreds of spectators. This program meets 2 times a week. One weekday practice and one Saturday game.

Selection process: A draft will be held where all participants will be selected for a team. It is requested that all participants attend the draft during their allotted time slot.

Practices: Practice nights and times are chosen by the volunteer coaches. With over 1200 kids playing winter basketball we can't take requests for practices. It would be impossible to accommodate everyone.
