Welcome to Garden City Basketball !

We believe that Garden City Basketball has the vision, volunteers and dedicated coaches, and sets the highest standard for youth basketball in the village of Garden City.   

Make sure you choose the right program…Garden City Basketball… 

The focus of Garden City Basketball is our intramural program.  Our greater mission is to provide a wonderful experience for all of our participants so that a love of the life long game of basketball will be nurtured and grow.

Garden City Basketball is an organization solely focused on basketball.  We have raised the bar and have injected activity, effort, and excitement for the sport of youth basketball in the village.  Our goal is simply to have a great program that is our version of fun for children.

ü  The Garden City Basketball Clinic for Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade Boys & Girls is held Sundays starting in December from12:30-2:30pm in the St. Paul's Field House.  

Skill development is important and Garden City Basketball has some of the best clinics that you can find.  Our Sunday clinic for Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd Grader’s is highly regarded by professionals and we are proud to announce is a model for other programs around the country.  Our K-1-2 clinic supplies over twenty hours of instruction!  We believe that Garden City Basketball is second to none in the quality and amount of training we fairly allocate to our participants.

We have established special training for “Speed, Agility, and Quickness” led by experts at the Professional Athletic Performance Center .  The training at this facility is used by the Garden City High School Athletic Department, other local public schools, the Islanders, and local colleges.  A special conditioning program built for Garden City Basketball is focused on children 8 years old and higher.  Experts from the Professional Athletic Performance Center provide instruction at their state-of-the-art facility located in Garden City and at St. Paul’s.  In addition, we are also pleased to be able to provide coaches clinics focused on injury prevention from this top flight organization.
