August 23, 2017 – 01:00 PM


The Town Of Ramapo Amateur Basketball Association (RABA) will be running its 8th annual Winter Youth League at the Joseph T St Lawrence Center for the ages 7-15. The RABA program gives all kids an opportunity to become more proficient in basketball while developing a sense of achievement in a league that is focused on community, sportsmanship, and fair play.  Whether a returning player, or new to the game, RABA provides a positive environment for your child to learn/improve their basketball skills and grow their love for the game.


Registration will open September 5th and run until October 5th (or all spots are filled). Registrations will be accepted at the Joseph T St Lawrence Center (115 Torne Valley Road Hillburn, NY).


***We rely on volunteer coaches to help run our programs, if you are interested please email Mike Leslie (  The more coaches we have, the more teams we can make***


Ages 9-15 (Price: $185 For Residents/$210 For Non-Residents)

Divisions: 9-11 Year Olds and 12-15 Year Olds (Dependent on Registration)

Season Runs: November 1st-February 15th

Schedule: Practices will be scheduled by coaches.  Game schedule will consist of 10 games + double elimination playoffs.  Games will be scheduled on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays.

Format: A Player Evaluation/Draft System is used in these Divisions to try and create teams as fair as possible.  Because of this, we can only guarantee that coach's kids and siblings be placed on the same team. 


Ages 7-8 (Price: $100 For Residents/$125 For Non-Residents)

Children will participate in a clinic style format that will include: building on the necessary skills to compete in a game, team building drills, and plenty of fun!  Games will be added as the season progresses.

Format: We will be working as one team during practices, and teams will be made weekly once games begin.

Season Begins: November 14th-Feb 6th

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.


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.


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!
