The Carolina Shockers basketball teams are seeking players for the new season.
The amateur youth travel league teams started last year with two teams of boys, but are expanding to include girls this season. Divisions are: 5th-6th grades boys team, 7th-8th grades boys and girls team, 9th- 10th grades boys and girls team, and 11th-12th grades boys team.
“I call basketball the game of life,” said Marcus Rivera, director of Carolina Shockers, of how the sport teaches players discipline, structure and how to operate as a team. He played basketball in high school and college.
