General Information

Basketball Registration is currently Open (10/2 - 10/23).

Our Basketball programs are offered for the following ages:

Intro to Basketball - (5-6 year olds) This is a clinic style program offered to help get these youngsters started in learning the basic fundamentals and concepts to the game. This is 6-week program with direct guidance/instruction from the RARO staff.

All of our Rookie / Junior / Senior programs will follow a similar format: 
Registration......Evaluations....Team Selection/Draft....Practices Begin.....Games Begin 

Rookies (7-8 year olds) This is program is designed to continue  developing basic fundamentals but begin introducing the team concept along with competition. The Rookies will play 4 on 4 to maximize on court time, basic concepts in spacing, screening, and defensive positioning.

Juniors (9-10 year olds) This program continues to work on the foundations laid in our Intro and Rookie leagues. Offensive movements and actions designed to break down a team defense will be utilized. Defensive positioning and each player working as 1 to stop the ball will be a main focus. 

Seniors (11-13 years old) This program is where it all starts to come together. The individual fundamentals, the team concepts, and schemes become a major part of the offensive and defensive plans.
