At this time, due to Mecklenburg County and CMS requirements, all players, coaches, spectators, referees, etc., must wear a mask while indoors unless a medical or behavioral condition or disability exception applies. Face coverings will be required when entering any building for the program.

If your child makes his or her school team, we ask that you consider a program refund in lieu of playing both school ball and rec ball this season, which will allow participants whose only option is recreational basketball an opportunity to play.
