MARA Boys Basketball is dedicated to providing the highest quality basketball programs for all ages, and talent levels. Players will learn the game from some of the best volunteer coaches in the Matthews area. Our boys have fun playing as a team, while continuously working on the fundamentals. We also plan to run clinics for both players and coaches.
All games and practices are played in our local area Middle and High School gyms. Professional referees, high school rules, and scoreboards make the MARA Boys' Leagues the place to play in southeast Charlotte.
Teams play a 10 game season and participate in a single elimination "Tournament of Champions" to crown individual league champions.
Each league has it's own league rules that are based on the various age groups. The overall league is governed by the 2015-2016 NC High School basketball rules. We feel the quality experience offered by our MARA recreational leagues is very close to the scholastic or AAU basketball experience.
