The YMCA of Metro Denver and the Denver Nuggets have teamed up to offer an amazing sports experience for our young athletes – the Junior Nuggets Program. 


Offered to participants in the YMCA Youth Sports Basketball program, this partnership includes:  

  • Collaborative Clinics, Coaches' and Parent Meetings: We believe in sharing knowledge and inspiration. These sessions are designed to equip coaches, parents and participants with valuable insights for a successful and fulfilling season ahead. 

  • Cool Jerseys and Game Tickets: Your young athlete will proudly rock a co-branded Denver Nuggets and YMCA jersey during games, showing off their affiliation with both organizations. Plus, they'll score tickets to select games in the 2023-2024 season, getting up close to the excitement of professional basketball. 

  • Join the Denver Nuggets Family: By joining the Junior Nuggets program, your child becomes part of the Denver Nuggets family. They'll have access to skills clinics and coaching resources to help them grow as athletes. 


We've got some exciting events and activities lined up too: 

  • Youth Basketball Night: Save the date for an epic evening on 2/22/24! Our youth basketball night will highlight programs across Colorado. Junior Nuggets participants can even share their experiences during halftime, inspiring others with their stories. 

  • Free Clinic hosted by the Denver Nuggets Basketball Academy: The Denver Nuggets Basketball Academy is hosting a co-ed clinic for youth aged 6-14. It's a chance for young athletes to have fun, improve their game and snag some awesome prizes. 


At the YMCA, we support your child's growth and seek to foster a sense of belonging through the joy of play. Sports teaches values, builds character and helps kids become their best selves. By joining the Junior Nuggets program, your child will gain athletic skills and life lessons that'll shape them into compassionate future changemakers. 


We are excited to offer this incredible opportunity to young athletes and their families to be part of the YMCA and Denver Nuggets sports community. Join us on this journey of growth, friendship and the pursuit of excellence. Together, we'll create a youth sports experience that will have a lasting impact on your child's life.  


Mark your calendars now! Registration for Winter Sports opens to YMCA members on Nov. 13 and Nov. 21 to all others
