South Side (YBA) Youth Basketball Association: Welcome

43 years and still going strong. 


  The South Side YBA basketball program is the best value in town! Six months of basketball for one low price. We emphasize life skills, academic success, sportsmanship and basketball fundamentals. Whether you are exploring basketball, seeking to gain skills, readying to try-out for the school team next season or looking for a place to keep your skills sharp - this is the program for you.

Players receive a uniform, banquet ticket and recognition for participating in the program. We also have trained coaches, certified officials, life skills talks, Player Draft Announcement program, All-Star game, and end of season luncheon banquet.  

 We still have spots available in our D-League division (8 - 10yrs), Rookie division (11 - 13yrs) and Junior division (14 - 17yrs). Register at the South Side YMCA located at 6330 S. Stony Island. For more information call (773) 947-0700.
