Recreational Activities

The following are a small sample of the recreation programs offered at the Youth Center:

Joseph Walsh Summer League Basketball

Keep a basketball in your hands over the summer and enjoy some games twice a week with other middle schoolers in North Andover. There are 4 different divisions: 6th grade boys, 7th grade boys, and 8th grade boys. Players receive reversible jerseys for the summer and all games are refereed by our current and former Varsity basketball team.


3 on 3 Basketball Tourneys

We love our 3 vs. 3 basketball tournaments, open to middle schoolers. It is always changing - pick your own team, draft, names from a hat, teams picked by grade.


Street Hockey

Street Hockey is a crowd favorite at the YC; it takes place all seasons! Games are played outside in our Street Hockey court! Games will vary between teams of 5 and teams of 15.  


Black Knights Basketball League

The Youth Center has two seasonal high school leagues, winter and spring Black Knights. The winter basketball program is open to High School Boys 9th - 12th grade, who are NOT playing Freshmen, JV or Varsity.  The fun and competitive 3 on 3 league is played every Tuesday night from December - February. The spring league is open to all players. The league runs through all of April and May. There is a JV division for Freshmen and Sophomores and a Varsity Division for Juniors and Seniors.
