DYSA

It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you learn the game. In the Dubuque Youth Sports Leagues (DYSA), kids develop all their skill in basketball and volleyball, while focusing on teamwork and sportsmanship. Supportive volunteer coaches build your child’s confidence while having fun and being part of a team.

Beginners and experienced players are welcome! Players register for the league, then on placed onto teams. Practices are organized and scheduled by the volunteer coaches after teams have been assigned; the Y does not provide practice space/times.
