Registration for the 2019-20 youth basketball season and cheerleading seasons are ongoing for the city of Rocky Mount’s Parks & Recreation Department.

Age groups will include co-ed (3-4, 5-6), boys (7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-15) and girls (7-9, 10-13). Leagues will play their games Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at the Rocky Mount Event Center.
Cheerleading is available for girls ages 5-12.

Registration lasts through Nov. 15 with a cost of $30 for residents and $45 for non-residents.

Youth will receive NBA replica jerseys.

Skills evaluations will take place Nov. 21 and Nov. 23. Practices begin in December, and games start in January.

“This youth basketball season marks the first time we will play games in the state-of-the-art Rocky Mount Event Center and the first season with plans to offer girls only leagues in the 7-9 and 10-13 age group,” Athletics Supervisor Alex Langley said. “We are looking for dedicated and passionate individuals to serve as league coaches and share basketball knowledge with our youth participants.”

Volunteer coaches and sponsor opportunities are available by calling 972-1162.
