YMCA Basketball Skills Evaluation Information

Date: Saturday, December 2nd
All players, even the coach’s children, must attend the skills evaluation to be ranked for the player draft.
Each player will go through a series of stations to demonstrate their skills and be given an individual score. Scores will be collected and analyzed by YMCA staff. Skills will include dribbling, shooting, speed, height, and defense. Stations will be completed by one player at a time. This should take no longer than 20 minutes per player once they begin completing the stations. Coaches will receive information individually about the draft day process and time. Coaches may attend while their child is being evaluated but are not allowed to view the remainder of the evaluation process.
Please see below for information regarding your players’ age group. You may drop-in during your scheduled time.

If your child misses the evaluation day on Saturday, December 2nd there will be a make-up evaluation on Tuesday, December 5th, from 5:30PM until 7:30PM all age groups may come during this time.
