PEORIA, Il. – January 26, 2021 – The Greater Peoria Family YMCA is bringing basketball back to their gymnasium this February! Coach Charles Gordon has been planning a robust and wide-ranging roster of opportunities for our youth to get back on the court safely, as soon as possible. Coach Gordon is offering both in-person and virtual options as Illinois Region 2 moves into Phase 4 of COVID-19 restrictions.

Here is what is being offered at the Y:

1-on-1 Basketball Training: To help young athletes reach their personal potential and achieve their athletic goals. Our coaches create workout programs that focus on the individual needs of each athlete. Whether you need help with your shot or your defense, whether your’re a big man or a guard we are confident our trainers will teach you skills that give players the EXTRA advantage on the court.

1-on-1 Youth Sports Conditioning: Building a solid athletic foundation at a young age is the best way to create successful athletes. Our Youth Athletic Conditioning Program helps build a foundation by teaching young athletes how to move and train properly. The training is intense, but is done in a fun and engaging atmosphere that builds confidence and fosters important attributes like leadership, perseverance and work ethic. Three 60-minute Sessions every Tuesday and Thursday at 9am, 10:15am, and 11:30am.
