According to athletic director Jaime DeJoseph, the YMCA Youth Basketball League has two divisions: “B,” which is a recreational league for girls and boys, ages 4 to 13, and is played in Prescott and Prescott Valley. “A” is a competitive league for youth ages 9-17 and this league is held in Prescott only. “The primary goal of the YMCA is to develop people, not professional athletes,” DeJoseph said. “Our volunteer coaches are dedicated to the development of young people and will emphasize the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.”
DeJoseph also pointed out that the league is not possible without volunteers. “We need you!! We can’t host this league without our volunteer coaches, assistant coaches, team parents and referees,” she said. “Volunteering is more than just sharing your time and your talent is the satisfaction of knowing you’re helping people grow stronger, giving back to your community, and gaining valuable work experience that will enhance your career opportunities,” DeJoseph continued.
