​​​​​Let's play some basketball!

Each year, in celebration of our international birthday, every YMCA in the world takes part in one challenge to tell the YMCA story to thousands of communities at the same time. This year, YMCAs across the globe are bringing their communities together through basketball.

Basketball is a special sport​ for the YMCA, as it was invented by YMCA employee, James Naismith in 1891! The game has now grown to be one of the most popular sports in the world. YMCA Ballarat is joining in the World Challenge ​with Hoop Jam at Delacombe Stadium.
