Wilmington Waves is a non-profit athletic organization developed to foster and promote the formation of a quality youth basketball program in Wilmington, North Carolina. This program gives young athletes the opportunity to compete at higher levels of basketball locally, regionally, and nationally.
Our teams allow athletes the opportunity to compete in an inclusive environment emphasizing education, sportsmanship, character and equality. We have been fortunate to have some of the most exceptional coaches in our community involved in our program over the years. As we support new teams, it is our goal to instill key values such as the importance of hard work, respect, discipline, sportsmanship, and commitment. By providing positive mentoring we hope to inspire our athletes to develop a vision, learn how to focus, persevere, and achieve both on and off the basketball court.
If you have an interest in club basketball and you are looking for support, we are here to help. Use our contact page and we'll follow up with you.
We are very thankful for the support of our parents, coaches, friends in the community, and local businesses which allows the Wilmington Waves to continue working to promote the growth of young athletes and develop productive citizens.
Athletes competing for our teams can expect a very high level of competition. We schedule major tournaments which include the best teams in Eastern North Carolina. Some teams travel to events in other states. Recent trips have included Atlanta and the Washington DC area.
Young players increase skills and exposure through tournament play and gain valuable experience and self-confidence. Upper level age group players tournament play can increase their accessibility to college recruiters for evaluation and scholarship opportunities.
Thanks to the New Hanover County Sheriff's office for involving the Waves in their community outreach programs!
