Dunn PAL Basketball Program Announces Merge

The Dunn PAL and Harnett Ballers are announcing a new partnership that will increase the participation and strengthen skill development for local youth in the sport of basketball.

The Harnett Ballers have agreed to combine with the Dunn Wildcats, the athletic branch of Dunn PAL, to offer a complex educational basketball program to youth in grades K-12th. Youth in grades K-4th will be in our new youth basketball development program and grades 5th-12th will be in our travel basketball program starting in February 2020.

All of the basketball coaches will be trained under National Alliance For Youth Sports. All of the coaches, players, and parents will follow a code of conduct pledge which includes our new basketball manual.

Currently, two locations have been identified for practices: the Dunn PAL Fitness Center and the Cape Fear Christian Academy gym. Other locations may be added later as needed.
