Youth Basketball Registration is Now Underway

GREENSBORO, NC (October 1, 2021) – Greensboro Parks and Recreation registration is now underway for youth basketball for children ages 5-16 and youth cheerleading for ages 5-13. Registration is $50 per participant. Returning participants may register online at www.greensboro-nc.gov/athletics. First-time participants may register in person at their neighborhood recreation center during normal business hours.
Regular season games will begin in January. Children will be placed on teams based on their age as of December 31. Parents or caregivers must show a copy of the child’s birth certificate and a Parents Association for Youth Sports<www.nays.org/parents/> (PAYS) membership card. To receive a PAYS card, parents or caregivers must watch a video and pay a $5 fee. Visit the National Alliance for Youth Sports website<www.nays.org/parents/> for more information.
Basketball and cheerleading will follow COVID-19 safety protocols, including wellness checks before practices and games for all participants, barring spectators during practices, and wearing a face covering at all times. Safety modifications may be made to this program as needed.
