2015-16 RABA Winter Youth (7-15 YRS) Basketball League Registration Is Currently Open

August 20, 2015 – 12:00 PM

Registration for the 2015-16 RABA Winter Youth Basketball league registration is currently open until September 25th (or spots filled).  Registrations accepted after the September 25th deadline will incur a late fee of $25 & will be placed on a wait list with no guarantee of team placement.  All registrations are being taken at the Joseph T St Lawrence Center in Hillburn, NY.  Please have your child's shirt size, height, and weight available when signing up.

 

WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO GET AS MANY KIDS IN AS POSSIBLE, BUT TO DO SO WE WILL NEED VOLUNTEER COACHES!!!  The divisions will be grouped as follows: 7-8 yrs old, 9-10 yrs old, 11-12 years old, and 13-15 years old.  Age is determined as of 12/1/15. For every coach we have, we can accept 9 kids.  If you are interested in being a coach, please contact Mike Leslie (lesliem@ramapo.org/845-753-2324).

 

Fees:

7-8 Year Olds:  Resident $100; Non-Resident $125 (includes T-shirt uniform)

9-15 Year Olds: Resident $175; Non-Resident $200 (includes uniform top)

 

We use a player evaluation, and a coach's draft system for the Winter League, to try and divide the teams up as evenly as possible.  No full teams will be allowed to enter. Due to the draft system used, there is also no guarantee that we can "team up" players, but do try to do so when we are able.  Players will have to attend one of the following evaluation sessions hosted at the Joseph T St Lawrence Center (Times TBA): Sunday, October 4th; Thursday, October 8th; Tuesday, October 13th so we can accomplish this.

 

Coach's Drafts Will Be Held from Tuesday October 19th-Wednesday October 28th and teams will be announced within 48 hours of the drafts completion.  The season will begin the week of November 2nd and run until President's Week (weather permitting). 

 

The 7-8 Year Old Division is planned to play Tuesday/Wednesday nights @ 6:45 and 7:45pm and Sunday Mornings 9am-2pm.  This season will have eight games and lots of practices to teach the kids the rules, skills, and teamwork necessary to play the game.  Town of Ramapo staff will referee these games to help aid in the learning process as well.  The goal of this league is to teach the kids the basics of basketball so they are ready to play with real referees in the upcoming seasons and have FUN! There will no playoffs at this age group.

 

The 9-15 Year Old Division is planned to play Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday nights @ 7:00 and 8:00pm at Pomona Middle School and 7:15pm and 8:15pm at the Joseph T St Lawrence Center as well as 9am-2pm on Sundays at both facilities.  These seasons will have 12 regular season games, practices, and a double elimination playoff tournament.  The 9-10 division games will be hosted at Pomona Middle School while the 11-12 year old and 13-15 year old games will be hosted at the Joseph T St Lawrence Center (Hillburn, NY).  Though games will be hosted at these specific venues, we will utilize any available space for team practices based on coach/player and court availability at both sites as well as for any potential weather make ups necessary.  The goal of these divisions are to provide the kids with an opportunity to grow individually while working together as a team to accomplish a common goal and have FUN!  There are guaranteed playing time rules to help facilitate this goal.  Every kid will play!  Sanctioned Rockland County referees will officiate all these divisions.

 

Looking forward to getting our 5th RABA Winter Youth League season started.  For any questions/coaching inquiries/further details please email Mike Leslie (lesliem@ramapo.org/845-753-2324).

RABA Zero Tolerance Policy + Youth League Gametime Responsibilities

October 23, 2011 – 12:00 PM



It is important FOR ALL RABA BASKETBALL LEAGUE TEAMS/PARTICIPANTS/FANS to remember the following so we can avoid potential problems as the season progresses:


ZERO TOLERANCE (Arguing/Swearing/Overall Conduct)

The officials and facility staff have been given specific instruction that this policy is to be strictly enforced in all RABA leagues.

Any loud outburts, demonstrative actions, unsportsmanlike conduct, arguing, fighting, etc. are subject to techinical fouls. Do not yell across the gym at the officials, or officiate the game while you are coaching/playing.

If you have a question about a ruling, ask in a calm,respectful manner during a timeout and it will be answered with the same courtesy. Arguing rule interpretations, however, will not be tolerated.

The official's explanation are final and should be accepted and respected at all times. They are not to be abused by players, coaches, and/or fans. They, like coaches and players, are giving their best effort and are essential for the leagues to operate and should be treated repectfully.

The first technical foul is your warning. It should be accepted as so, for if a second technical foul is given you must leave the game and playing area sight and sound or the game will not begin until done and may be forfeited if not done in a timely, quiet manner.

If you earn a ejection, a suspension will be assessed. Any disciplinary action that is needed to be taken will be discussed amongst present staff, referees, league commisioner, and referee assignor based on severity of the account of situation. All rulings are final.

For Youth League games, please remember that table personnel is part of the officials staff for that game, so please no yelling or giving instructions when filling one of these roles.

PRE-GAME

Prior to gametime, the book should be ready 5 minutes before the posted gametime. Adult League- Check in (Name + Number) with facility staff at scorers table before taking the floor. Youth League- Write all players on roster in book prior to the game and cross out absent players prior to start of the game.

Teams will get 5-10 minutes (may vary due to time restraints) to warm up, check-in, get volunteers for their table, and have the scorebooks ready to go.

Teams are encouraged to show up at least 15 minutes prior to the posted gametime.

HOME TEAM (Youth League)

Is responsible for providing the clock operator and the official scorebook at the table. One person is not to do both unless absolutely necessary. Parents please volunteer to help out your coaches when needed.

VISITING TEAM (Youth League)

The visiting team is to have one person doing an unofficial scorebook at the table to verify/correct the score. Please check at each stoppage of play that your book and home team's book match.

Post-Game

Make sure when your game is finished that the players clean up the bench area. Facilty and janitorial staff should assist with spills, especially blood, but water/sportdrink bottles and fan trash should be tended to by all participants and fans of the RABA (not just coaches) at the conclusion of each game.

Thank you for participating in RABA Basketball Leagues!
