2 Day Chute Basketball Camp

**New skills and drills this year!**
June 13 & June 14
We are excited to announce that the 2-day Chute Basketball Camp will be returning to our facility this summer! Cute coaches make it their priority to improve basketball players skill, specifically the way they shoot a basketball. The Chute Camp corrects the 6 most common problems in shooting:
1. Keeping the elbow in, under the ball
2. Off hand is not allowed to go forward while shooting
3. Puts proper arch on the ball
4. Balance the body and ball
5. Eyes are on the target
6. Follow through to the target line

Camp Times:
6th - 8th grade boys and girls
8:30 - 10:30 am

4th-8th Grade Traveling Basketball

The YMCA is partnering with the Monroe Youth Basketball Club to provide our community with a basketball opportunity once again this year. Practices will be held on an evening or two weekly typically at an elementary school or at the Monroe Middle School. Practices will focus on teaching the fundamentals and a love of the game. Each teams coach will set up tournaments, or a league opportunity to add competitive games to the experience. Typically practices will begin in November and the season will run towards the end of February. Boys and girls have their own teams and they will also be separated by grade level. Going into the 7th & 8th grade level there may be an opportunity to divide teams into skill levels if the numbers are there.
For all grades we ask that you sign up before the tentative end of registration date. Signing up early helps us move the scheduling piece along at a quicker pace. It also allows for us to get a head count on how many participants each team will have.
**Participants must live in Monroe to play for the Green County YMCA teams. The exception is if someone from a different community wants to play for Monroe because their community does not offer organized basketball for that particular grade. If you are from another community outside of Monroe and you are unsure what to do, please call the YMCA at 608-325-2003 & ask to speak to the Sports Director**
Registration dates: July 31st - September 16th
