Welcome to the Nothing But Net Basketball Organization. We are a non-profit organization, co-sponsored by the Huntersville Parks and Recreation Department. We run a spring and fall recreation basketball program each year for Huntersville youth and surrounding cities. Kids ages 6-18 participate in our program. We provide basketball after the HYAA season from March - May/June. and after the H.O.Y.A.S. season staring in Aug - Oct.
We are 100% volunteers and rely on volunteer coaches and parents to make each season successful and enjoyable.
Our season are all about fun and learning the create game of basketball and sportsmanship. We do not tolerate poor behavior from fans, players, coaches or any spectators. Our league is for the kids to enjoy the game without added pressures beyonds what the rules and friendly competition provides.
Carl Christy, Co-Commissioner/President
Carl Christy began coaching with NBN in 2012, shortly after graduating from UNCC with his degree in Engineering. Falling in love with the league& athletes, Carl has not missed a season since, often coaching multiple teams when needed. His main goal is for the kids to have fun and enjoy basketball for the great game it is. Watching young athletes grow in their skills, abilities, and confidence while maturing in life lessons sports brings to youths is his one take away from the league.
Jim Crawford - Co-Commissioner/Vice-President Jim Crawford has been coaching basketball, running leagues and tournaments and has been refereeing basketball for many years before moving to North Carolina in 2013. Jim has enjoyed spending time in almost every role in basketball - from spectator and parent to score keeper and clock operator to league administrator and tournament scheduler to referee. Jim loves the game and the environment and wants to make sure the kids have a positive experience every time they step into a gym. "The playing years of basketball represent only a very small percentage of time in one's overall basketball career. There are many way to give back to this great game throughout your lifetime."
