All Little Hoopers sessions for Kindergarten through 2nd Grade are Saturday mornings at Brimhall Elementary School, November through February. This league does not practice weeknights.
The focus is on basic fundamentals and having fun.
The in-house program is designed to offer a competitive environment for 3rd through 8th grade students to play basketball. The purpose of the program is to advance the players' basketball skills and team play. No previous experience required - players of all skill levels are welcome! Each league will play 10 regular season games.
Practices begin end of October, Games begin Mid-November and run through early February, with breaks for Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Years.
All programs 3rd-8th grade are required to complete tournament volunteer hours. Tournament weekends are 10/29-10/30 and 2/4-2/5. This volunteer time helps to ensure program costs remain low. Available hours will be posted via dibs prior to our hosted MYAS tournament(s). If you cannot or choose not to volunteer at one of the tournaments, RYBA has an opt-out fee of $200.00 for travel or $50.00 for In-house. In the event you call off from your shift or no show, RYBA will collect opt out fee or players will not be eligible to play in the MYAS State Tournament.
Travel families are required to fill 2 shifts. In-house are required to fill 1 shift. You are only required to volunteer for one tournament or if travel you can split your shifts between our two tournaments if that is easier for you.
How many practices are there?
- In-house practices once a week for 1.5 hours. When you register you can select the best available evenings for practices. This will not guarantee all practices will be on these days but we will do our best during team placement to accommodate the availability.
When are the games?
- Games take place on Saturdays. Your schedule will be sent out by the teams coach within the first two practices. It does take time to make the schedule, and often adjustments are needed. We strive to have the information available as quickly as possible.
What about a Tournament?
After the 10 game season that runs from November to February, our in-house teams grade 5th-8th do participate in an end-of-season tournament. We participate in a local in-house tournamen or match play event with all the teams we played against in the season.
In an attempt to even out teams and create a more competitive league, we will only honor one friend request that is reciprocated. Coach requests will be considered, but not guaranteed as we transition this season and make a focused effort to have a healthy challenge that will give results in players skill sets and level of play.
If you have any further questions, please contact In-House Directors for your program.
