Pickup basketball games happen every day at the 14th Street Y.

Swing by your East Village community center for a drop-in dribble-and-shoot or an impromptu game on our indoor court. Lace up for one of our basketball leagues or classes.

Our full-court schedule includes dedicated times for adult members and for teens, as well as our men’s and women’s leagues. Basketball classes, for kids 5-14 years old, are fun and inclusive, tailored for players of every talent level. Coaches focus on skills and drills, integrity and teamwork.

The 14Y’s Basketball program is currently on pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re planning on reopening basketball for shoot arounds and small 2-to-3 people games this summer. Stay tuned for more details!
