The Charlotte County Recreation Association (CCRA) is in the process of raising funds for our outdoor basketball court and park facility that will be located on Westpoint Stevens Rd in Drakes Branch,Va. Property has been purchased for the project but more funds will be needed for development and equipment.We have provided youth basketball in Charlotte County for the past 13 years.Our organization currently relies on our public school facilities for games and practices and other activities, however there are times when these facilities are not available.This project will allow us to further our activities during Summer months.It will also allow us to incorporate activities for older teens that are aged out of the present basketball league.This facility will be closely monitored and strictly controlled.We currently offer basketball programs for youth ages 7-14 yrs old. However, because of limited gym facilities we are unable to expand the age groups.We would also like to add playground equipment to the site. All this is needed to help our youth combat boredom and offer a wholesome activity to steer them clear of trouble.Your assistance will be greatly appreciated as we cannot succeed without public help. We are not County affiliated as we are a 501 c 3 non profit organization. Our County does not have an official County operated recreation association.This can be your way to help build a better community.

Hello everyone. With the help of you the people we are making great progress with this project. We're still not over the hump, but we are clawing our way there. Any support is still welcomed and appreciated as the concrete for our basketball court is very expensive. Thanks in advance.
