Our CYC Basketball program aspires to be an outstanding educational – athletic program that provides a high-quality experience to every athlete, especially those who need it most. A high-quality experience is one in which every athlete:

  • Is coached using the principles of positive coaching
  • Has fun at practices and games
  • Feels like an important part of the team regardless of performance
  • Has respect for self, team-mates, coaches, and officials
  • Learns “life lessons” that have value beyond the court
  • Learns the skills, tactics, and strategies of the game and improves as a player.

Learn the basics of basketball from how to hold, dribble, and pass the ball. Players work with a small basket to practice the fundamentals of shooting! Emphasis on passing, shooting, and dribbling. Games are introduced to develop physical, social, and motor skills to instill self-confidence. Dribble, Shoot, SCORE! The 9th - 12th-grade league is the only non-high school league in the Pittsfield area. This program is aimed at high school-age students not playing for high school teams in and around Pittsfield.

We recognize that coaches are the people who most directly make this all possible. It is our goal to provide every coach with the tools to succeed as a positive coach. We are committed to creating a positive culture in which coaches, parents, officials, and athletes work together to achieve our mission.
