Two Communities. One League. One Goal. The RPFYBL is a recreational league for boys and girls in grade 1st-8th. In addition to emphasizing the fundamentals of the sport—passing, shooting, ball-handling and defense-- participants will learn the importance of teamwork and good sportsmanship. Youth will be assigned to a team that will play in a minimum of 10 competitive games with standings being updated weekly. Most games are played on Saturday mornings/afternoon. Other participating communities may be included. All participants will receive a full uniform and basketball with awards being distributed at seasons end. Practices and game locations may vary. Spectator fee for games applies to all parents and guests. Once uniforms are ordered, no refunds will be given under any circumstance. Please ensure accuracy in child's uniform size when registering, as replacement uniforms will be issued at the parents expense ($60).

 $50 due at registration for payment plans as well as a $10 payment plan processing fee.
