Youth size basketballs weigh 16 to 18 ounces and have a circumference of 27.5 inches. These basketballs are ideal for kids aged 9 and under.
TIP! Try the SPALDING Rookie Gear basketball for your youngster. Weighing in at 15% less than the standard youth basketball, the ball enables players to shoot with proper form, rebound more confidently and dribble with greater success.
