RABA Winter Youth (7-15) League Registration Open Until September 25th

August 26, 2016 – 02:00 PM

 

We are happy to announce the start of our 7th RABA WINTER YOUTH season for 7-15 year olds! 

Age divisions will be: 7-8 year old (Clinic), 9-10 year old, 11-12 year old, 13-15 year old

 

The 7-8 Year Old Division will play Tuesday nights and Sunday mornings at the Joseph T St. Lawrence Center.  We run this division as a clinic where we teach the fundamental skills needed to play a game of basketball before we incorporate games on Sunday mornings to use those skills learned in a game format.  There will be no playoffs for this division and games will be refereed by Town of Ramapo staff.  This division will begin November 15th and run until February 12th.

 

The 9 –15 Year Old Division will play games at the Joseph T. St. Lawrence Center and Pomona Middle School (on Tuesdays).  Teams will be scheduled to play minimally two times a week.  Extra time outside this will be determined by court, coach and team availability and will be distributed as evenly as possible around the main schedule.  All games are officiated by certified referees.  The season format is as follows:

Practice: November 1st-November 27th

Practice/Games (12 games): November 30th-December 22nd AND January 3rd-Jan 22nd

Playoffs (Double Elimination): January 24th-February 16th

 

VOLUNTEER COACHES ARE NECESSARY TO ACCEPT AS MANY KIDS AS POSSIBLE!  We need 1 coach for every 9 players.  Please contact Mike Leslie (lesliem@ramapo.org/845.753.2324) as soon as possible if you are interested.

 

DATES TO REMEMBER: 

Player Evaluation Dates: Saturday, October 8th, Tuesday, October 11th, and Thursday, October 13th (Time TBA)

Drafts to be Held:  Monday, October 17th – Wednesday, October 26th

*Teams will be announced by October 28th

You can also visit the league’s website at www.leaguelineup.com/raba, which has all league information and updates.

 

We look forward to your child’s participation this season.  At the end of the season, it is our hope that your children will have improved their basketball skills and increased their interest in the game of basketball while demonstrating good sportsmanship and building relationships.

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!

Thank You RABA 7-8 Year Old Division Clinic Participants For A Great 2015-16 Season!

February 9, 2016 – 01:30 PM

 

Thank you to all our RABA 7-8 year old participants this season!!!

We grew as individuals, while learning to work together as a team.  We put hard work in, before we had fun. But we learned that the hard work can be fun too!  We succeeded, we failed, but along the way we all learned and became better.

We battled hard against each other, but remained respectful and made friends along the way.  The trophy we received is not only a reminder of your individual accomplishment but to remind you of the experience we all had together this season as a team of 23. We all got better by working together.

Congratulations to all for your hard work and commitment this year, hope to see you all next season. Keep Playing! Keep Practicing! Keep Working Hard And Having Fun!
