House Hoops

Winter 2023-2024 Info

The Darien YMCA House Hoops program is the largest and most prominent program that the Darien YMCA offers. The fun filled program is offered for players who are in grades 3rd through 8th. After an exciting regular season of House Hoops, each player will participate in the town wide double elimination playoff tournament which is attended by thousands of spectators. This program meets 2 times a week. One weekday practice and one weekend game.

Selection process: A draft will be held where all participants will be selected for a team. It is requested that all participants attend the draft during their allotted time slot.

Practices: Practice days and times for 3rd-8th grade house basketball are chosen by the volunteer coaches. You won't know that info until after evaluations when teams are made. With over 1200 kids playing winter basketball we can't take requests for practices. It would be impossible to accommodate everyone. Thank you for understanding.


Grades 3rd - 8th Boys & Girls

Members - $350
