Westview Girls Youth Development Program (YDP)

We are an Oregon IRC Section 503(c)(3) non-profit, parent-run organization formed to take the place of Select/Recreational Basketball in the Bethany area of Portland. 

Our goal is to develop youth athletes in a safe and competitive environment.  We collaborate closely with Westview High School's Girls Coaches to help prepare girls grades 5th to 8th to play high school basketball.

Our organization consists of highly dedicated parent board members, volunteer coaches, High School coaches, and passionate community volunteers!

PLEASE CHECK BACK OFTEN FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION!

GO C.A.T.S.!

Confidence.  Ability.  Toughness.  Support.

FALL CLINICS
