Recreational Charlotte Basketball League


There’s no better place to learn the basics of basketball than where it was invented – the YMCA rec center. Since 1891, Y volunteers have coached kids and adults in this high-energy, exciting game. Charlotte volunteer coaches lead players in drills and games designed to develop the fundamental skills of ball handling, dribbling, passing, shooting and defense. Boys and girls improve technique and build lasting friendships through recreational basketball.

This season, we are excited to offer a recharged basketball program to our young athletes. Our Youth Basketball Circuit (formerly referred to as Youth Basketball League/season) will be offered in a regional format in Charlotte, NC.

  • North Region: Lake Norman YMCA, Lincoln County YMCA, Lowe’s YMCA, Sally’s YMCA
  • Central North Region: Keith Family YMCA, McCrorey YMCA, Simmons YMCA, Stratford Richardson YMCA
  • Central South Region: Dowd YMCA, Johnston YMCA, Harris YMCA
  • South Region: Brace Family YMCA, Morrison YMCA, Steele Creek YMCA

All games and practices will be held at a combination of these YMCA’s within each region. Recreational basketball practice and game schedules will be provided in advance of the start of the season. If we do not have enough teams within a region, cross-region play could be implemented.
