The Harrisburg Parks and Recreation Department offers basketball for children 5 years old to 16 years old. Basketball is offered in the winter. 

Winter 2022-2023 Basketball registration is closed.  

If you missed registration and are still interested in having a child participate this season, you may add the child to the waiting list for their correct age group. If a spot becomes available and needs to be filled for an age group and/or on a specific team, the Parks & Recreation staff will refer to the waiting list to fill that opening as a late registration.

Regular Registration: September 19 - October 9, 2022 

LATE Registration: October 10 - October 16, 2022 

A $25 late fee will be applied to each registration submitted between 10/10 and 10/16. A donation of 12 canned goods per late registration may be made to have the fee waived. Cans must be presented at time of registration, so these late registrations can only be processed in person at the Parks and Recreation office between 10/10 and 10/14 during regular office hours. 

IMPORTANT TOWN OF HARRISBURG POLICY CHANGE: For all Parks & Recreation fees, “Resident"/"Town of Harrisburg Taxpayer” refers to participants who reside within Town of Harrisburg city limits and pay the additional Harrisburg City Tax to the Town of Harrisburg. Fees and residency are no longer based on a Harrisburg address or county residence. This policy change may make the registration cost for your participant different from previous seasons (prior to winter 2022).  

Where/How to Register (and add a child to waiting list):

Registration is 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. Individual household members, such as children and spouse, need to be added to the main member account in order to be able 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:
  • The Harrisburg Parks and Recreation Office is located inside Harrisburg Town Hall (4100 Main St, Harrisburg, NC 28075) and is open Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm.
    •  If you need assistance with online registration, please call the office at 704-455-7275 and select option 1.
