Celebrating 125 years of basketball!

The YMCAs of Québec - February 12 2016

Do you know what sport was founded in 1891? Invented by James Naismith, a YMCA canadian instructor, basketball has become one of the most popular sports in North America, and is played around the world.

Over the past 125 years, basketball has helped bring communities together, motivate teens to stay in school, and keep people of all ages active & healthy.

From February 12-14, the NBA All-star weekend will take place in Toronto marking the anniversary of this remarkable sport which has brought so much to our communities.

Basketball started at the YMCA 125 years ago…be a part of our next 125 years of innovation & motivation!
