Celebrating our 55th year of KIM League Basketball in 2019-20

KIM League Basketball is beginning its 55th year of developing young boys and girls into better players and even better people. With the help of over 100 volunteers and workers, KIM League Basketball now includes nearly 500 kids and almost 60 teams.

Beginning in our 3rd/4th grade league, players sign up to play for their respective school. Teams will practice at their school once/week and get to compete with their classmates against other schools' teams. This partnership with HCCSC (Huntington County Comnunity School Corporation) has been such a wonderful collaboration as parents do not need to travel all the way to the Y for practices and kids get to grow closer to their school they represent. is where you can find game schedules, Coach information, and rules for each league. Please use this resource as a tool to help keep you informed.

A Brief History

KIM League Basketball originally was started by Ez Williams, a lifelong basketball fan, as the Y Midget League. A basketball league for boys in the 4th - 6th grades. Here is a little of the "rest of the story".

Ez and Laberta Williams

One year, after returning home from the Huntington Basketball Sectional, and watching Huntington High School lose to one of the "County" teams, Ez decided something needed to be done to get Huntington High back to winning Sectionals. His plan was to start a boys basketball league in town. An organized, competitive league where boys would learn the basics of the game and develop their skill set. He found a willing partner in the Y and began the Midget League basketball program in 1958.

During the 1963-64 Midget League season, a young boy named Kim Howenstine collapsed while playing in a game at the Y. Kim died a few months later of brain cancer. His impact on the Midget League and more specifically, on Ez Williams, became evident when it was proposed the league be renamed "KIM League". For the 1964-65 season and from then on, the Y's basketball program has been called the KIM League. KIM League basketball has been instrumental in encouraging players to work hard and dedicate themselves to being better players and even better teammates.

One man's beautiful vision of kids learning, growing, and improving together has become an iconic sports program for our Community.

Thanks Ez.
