2020 James Family Prescott YMCA Youth Basketball League 

Youth Development - making a difference in the lives of children.

Prescott YMCA – The James Family Prescott YMCA’s 34th Annual Youth Basketball League season is almost here. The League, which is sponsored by Foothills Bank, will kick off January 4th and run through March 4th. 

Our Youth Basketball League exists for the youth of our community, providing them with the opportunity to develop their basketball skills. The primary objective of the YMCA is to develop people, not professional athletes. Our Volunteer Coaches are dedicated to developing youth and will emphasize the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. We have two divisions:  “B”, which is a recreational league for girls and boys, ages 4-13, which runs in Prescott and Prescott Valley and “A”, which is a competitive league for youth, ages 9-17 and that league runs in Prescott only.  “Our League provides a safe and fun environment where kids are able to learn the foundations of basketball from people who care about them,” said Jaime DeJoseph, Sports Director. 

The James Family Prescott YMCA would like to thank the following people for helping make a difference in the lives of the youth in our community. Our Major Sponsor Foothills Bank, all of our individual team Sponsors, Action Graphics, A Portrait Park By J, Volunteer Coaches and the Prescott & Humboldt Unified Schools Districts. We couldn’t run this League without all of our amazing partners and volunteers. For more information, feel free to contact Jaime DeJoseph at or 928-445-7221 x233
