Teams are formed as 3-4, 5-6, 7-8 for boys by high school boundary.
Same for girls, but for grades 3-4, 5-6 (seventh and eighth grade girls are travel only).
We do not have tryouts/evaluations for league participants.
Teams are divided as equally as possible.This is easier to do for the older grades as we have some historical perspective on each player.
The number of, along with who is willing to coach, will also impact team formation.
League teams can vary in size from 7 to 13 players, realizing that 9 is optimal, but not always possible.In rare occurrences, we may combine players from outside boundaries (IE; place a Mayo student on JM) to make the number of players per team balance.
Practice time for house teams is 1 to 2 days per week.
League practices begin the last week of October or first week of November depending on the year and end in mid-January.
While the majority of travel players are excused from league, the following are exceptions…
Fourth grade travel players, with the exception of the Boys A teams, are required to play house.
Fifth through Eighth grade A and B travel players are excused from league.Those playing C, D, etc. are required to play league.
This is to ensure we have enough players to maintain a robust league offering.
League Playing Time Expectations
Equal participation per game is the goal of our league. However, please realize that playing time for every game will not be perfectly distributed. As Missing practices, showing up late, any discipline issues, etc. might also impact playing time.
RCYBA will provide a jersey for league game play.
The cost for a house league jersey is factored into registration.
For league game players will need to wear their provided jersey and dark shorts.
