What We’re About
Our partnership with the Cleveland Cavaliers focuses on giving young players the confidence and positive FUN environment they crave to be successful in athletics.  We focus on teaching basketball skills, as well as the importance of teamwork and the YMCA core values of honesty, caring, respect, and responsibility.  Players ages 5-12yrs are lead by volunteer coaches who meet them where they are, and build up each individual’s skill set. 
Why Jr Cavs?
Too often, programs for kids are designed by adults exclusively.  So we asked America’s youth directly what makes a sports league great.  The Answer?  “Making friends, getting cool jerseys (SWAG!), and it has to be Fun!” 
That’s the kind of environment the Jr Cavs leagues aim to provide.  With official reversible jerseys, free Cleveland Cavaliers tickets, organized age groups, and a focus on having fun! 
Registration for the 2021/2022 Season Opens September 1!
