Carolina Beach Youth Basketball League open for registration is your source for free news and information in the Wilmington area.

Carolina Beach Recreation Center

Registration for the Carolina Beach Parks and Recreation Department Youth Basketball League is now open to town residents and those who played last season.

Early registration began Sept. 14 and ends Sept. 20. Starting Monday, Sept. 21, non-residents of Carolina Beach will also be allowed to register. Signups end on Oct. 11 or when the league is full.

All players ages 6 – 17 are eligible to play in the coed league. Only players who make their school’s varsity team will be ineligible (refunds will be given to those players). The cost is $35 for Carolina Beach residents (with proof of residency) and $45 for non-residents.

Practices are scheduled to begin on Nov. 2, with games starting Dec. 3. Athletes can look forward to playing in a new-look gym this year, as the Carolina Beach Recreation Center is replacing their basketball court’s flooring. Installation is set for October and will be completed before practices start.
