Registration for the Dowd YMCA Youth Basketball League, which has been a staple in the community for over 40 years, is underway through Nov. 7.

The program, a competitive developmental league, is partnering with the Charlotte Bobcats this season participants will be a part of the “Future Cats” program.

Teams will be divided by age in the following groups: 5-year-olds; U8 (6- and 7-year olds); U10 (8- and 9-year olds); U12 (10- and 11-year-olds); and U 14 (12- and 13-year olds). Teams will have a maximum of 10 players, with everyone playing at least half the game.

Games will be held on Saturdays at Dowd, beginning Dec. 7. U12 and U14 will play both Friday and Saturday. Practices begin the week of Nov. 18. Visit ymcacharlotte.org for more information.
