Watch Them Sink Every Shot with the Right Youth Basketball
Get them started in the game with a basketball that’s just right: Shop youth basketballs that deliver the feel and playability they need.
Size five basketballs measure 27 inches in circumference and weigh 18 ounces – a size designed for the game’s young and developing players. Shop basketballs designed in classic orange and black or fun, multicolored balls that kids are sure to love.
Select from youth basketballs designed for indoor and outdoor play and basketballs designed from composite and composite leather materials. Leather basketballs deliver cushioned playability on court, but synthetic or composite basketballs prove versatile and durable enough for both indoor and outdoor use.
Look for details like reinforced seams that prevent moisture saturation within the ball. Basketballs with a cushioned skin have an extremely playable feel, but do not perfect as well when exposed to the elements outdoors. All-over pebbling provides better grip between the surface of the ball and the player’s fingers.
Find basketballs for kids from names you trust, like Spalding® and Wilson®.
