The South Charlotte Recreation Association been around for decades and has provided a high quality basketball league for thousands of girls and boys in our community over the years. We are rated as one of the top youth basketball programs in Charlotte. This year we hope to continue the tradition of excellence. And in the spirit of continuous improvement, we want to make some enhancements and changes to our league in order to improve the experience of all of those in our basketball community - players, parents, coaches, refs and fans. We will highlight some of those changes below. 

We have developed four guiding principles that will drive everything we do with the league.

We want all of our participants to:

1. Have fun

2. Get Better

3. Play 

4. The fourth is strive to achieve league PARITY.  Competitive balance is something that we strive to achieve every year. It’s an ambitious goal but spreading the talent around helps the league avoid lopsided blowout games and allows more themes to be competitive and have more fun.  

Listed below are some of the things you can expect to for the 2019/2020 season:

1. This year, as every year, we want to encourage positive attitudes, sportsmanship and fair play and respect from the entire SCRA basketball family - players, coaches, parents and fans.  Our code of conduct policy includes our required Standards of Behavior agreements for ALL players, coaches and parents.  We will provide forms on this website that must be signed and submitted to league officials during the mandatory evaluations by all players, coaches and parents before the draft.  Players registration shall be considered incomplete until both the players and parents forms have been submitted.

2. We will extend the registration deadline for Middle School student-athletes trying out for their school teams.  However, we strongly encourage you to register your child early even if they are trying out for the school team.  And if they DO make the team we will make a special exception to our no refund policy and refund your registration fees without penalty.

4. Mandatory evaluations for ALL players. All players must participate in the evaluation process in order to participate in the draft process. The evaluation process is the key to creating competitive parity across the league. We will hold multiple evaluation sessions to give every player an opportunity to attend a skills evaluation session.  This will NOT apply to the Instructional Division. There NO evaluations required for the Instructional Division  

5. Any player that misses the evaluation may NOT be drafted by ANY team. Instead, they MUST be assigned to a random blind "hat pick" in the draft pool

6.  We do NOT allow intact teams or AAU teams for the boys league. This rule will also prohibit more than two players from the same boys AAU or another organized travel team from playing on the same team.  This rule does NOT apply to the girls league.  Additionally please be advised that parental requests, carpooling or requests for specific coaches requests are NOT factors considered for team placement.  We believe this is critical to our ongoing efforts to establish and maintain the competitive balance across the league.  

7. The girls league will no longer have restrictions on playing with friends and teammates from other sports.  

I am looking forward to having an exciting and fun-filled season of basketball. Should you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me at


Sincerely Yours,

Coach Rafi
