2023-2024 Winter Basketball Information Sheet

Please click HERE or the link above to read through this season's information sheet for important details, requirements, instructions, and answers to frequently asked questions PRIOR to registering a child. 

Where/How to Register:

NOTE TO PARENTS/GUARDIANS: You must read through the season's information sheet (linked above) BEFORE completing a registration for your player(s) to review the important details that will help you complete your player's registration appropriately. The information is also provided to help you determine if this sport/league will be a "good fit" for your family. Please consider all information, especially potential practice/game nights and times, before completing a player registration. Due to the complexity of team creation, scheduling, uniforms, etc., we cannot make player and/or team changes after team drafts are completed. 

Registration will be available online or in-person at the Harrisburg Parks and Recreation Office. All registrations are processed through the CivicRec program, so an active member account is required. Additional household members, such as children and spouse, need to be added to the main member account in order to register them for an activity. Please keep all household members under one main account for easier tracking of activities, payments, etc., and be careful to not create multiple accounts.     

  • Online Registration:
    • If you need additional assistance with registration, you may call the office at 704-455-7275 (M-F 8am-5pm) or email [email protected].
  • In person: The Harrisburg Parks and Recreation Office is located in Harrisburg Town Hall (4100 Main Street Harrisburg, NC 28075). The office is open and available for walk-in registrations Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm.
