This is the first year that my boys have played basketball for the Y, and I can tell you that it will be their last! There is 1 team that was personally hand-picked and the refs are blatantly biased towards that team. During a game last night, one of their players fell and the ref said, in these exact words,"I don't know who tripped him, but somebody did", and called a foul for the other team. In reality, he tripped over his own feet some of the players on that team said the same thing. They have kids running the scoreboard and time clock and they're too busy talkin on their phones or each other to do it right. I think a big change needs to happen.

This is our first year as well doing basketball through the YMCA. I have to totally agree with you. I have been very disappointed with the set up.

They don't seem to take the games too seriously. I think playing for the Y is supposed to be for fun, not competition.

Beckley Y basketball has been around for a long time. They must be doing something right if they can play the biggest biddy-buddy tournament on the east coast in beckley

I agree, it is supposed to be for fun, so why in the world would they want to take away from the other boys just to give it to one team.

Well, it's funny that they used to have 12-14 teams in the middle school age group, and now it has dwindled down to just 4. They may be doing something right for the little ones, but not for the bigger ones.
