Youth Basketball
Grace, speed, power . . . all of these adjectives have been used to describe the most distinguished basketball players of all time. The best players in the game did not come by this talent overnight, however. They had to develop their skills. In order to give children a chance to develop their proficiency in basketball, the St. Joseph Parks & Recreation Department administers a youth basketball program each autumn/winter. Regardless of whether a child is interested in competition, skill development or just playing for fun, we encourage all youth to get involved in this program. All pertinent information and forms will be available on this website or at the St. Joseph REC Center, 2700 SW Parkway. For additional information, please call the REC Center, 271-5512 or Parks & Recreation office at (816) 271-5500.
