League Program

5th - 8th Grade Boys League Program Overview

The 5th through 8th grade boys league program is a full 5-on-5 league program designed to continue and expand a player’s basic individual and team skills.

Players will be placed on teams based on the high school district they live in.  All efforts will be made to form balanced and fair teams.

  • 5th & 6th grade combined teams
  • 7th & 8th grade combines teams

Players are NOT allowed to play up a grade, unless approved by RCYBA. If found to be doing so, will result in an automatic expulsion from the program without refund. Refer to RCYBA Policy on trying out for higher-grade team (https://rcyba.sportngin.com/page/show/2007703-rules-and-policies)

Schedule times and locations for practices and games will be posted on the RCYBA website under the “PRACTICE SCHEDULE” and “LEAGUE” Tab on our Home Page.

Please note: RCYBA will would like to be able to schedule each teams practice schedule in advance of the season starting and have teams practice at the same time and location for the duration of the season, but that is not possible.  RCYBA works through Community Education to reserve the gym space and we need to schedule around all the school activities.  If we have a gym scheduled and a school decides they need to gym for school activity RCYBA is removed from the gym schedule during that time.
