Greensboro Parks and Recreation offers the youth basketball program for ages 5 through 16; designed to create a positive environment for youth by emphasizing each individual’s right to participate, good sportsmanship, promoting skill development, and fitness and well-being. 

Our Philosophy

Although winning is important, we do not emphasize it as a priority. We measure success on the skills a player develops and the amount of fun the player is having. 
  
All Greensboro Parks and Recreation Athletic programs maintain a family friendly and sportsmanlike atmosphere. Review the codes of conduct for coaches, parents, and players. These guidelines extend to all who enter the playing and spectator areas.
