    Basketball and the YMCA

    Did you know basketball was invented by a Canadian at the YMCA?

    The game was invented 125 years ago by Canadian YMCA instructor James Naismith at the YMCA International Training School.  The sport has come a long way in the 125 years since then, but many of Dr. Naismith’s 13 original rules and values are still evident in how the sport is played today.

    Basketball is still a game that promotes leadership, skill and teamwork and can be played by anyone – regardless of age and ability – with just a ball and a net.

    At the YMCA, youth and adult members are welcome to either drop in and join a pickup game, or become part of a more formal basketball program.
