Welcome to RYSI Basketball

RYSI Travel Basketball is entering its seventh season in 2017-18, running both boys and girls teams from grades 4 through 8.  We play in the Garden State Basketball league, which includes teams from East Orange to Flemington and many towns in between.  This is a competitive league, and we ask that basketball be the first extracurricular priority for those who choose to play. Due to league rules, players must reside in Bernards Township to play on an RYSI team.The season runs from early December into March 2018.  Once the season begins, each team will play between 13 and 17 games, depending on playoff success, and possibly a weekend tournament.   Games can be on any weekday evening, or on weekends, depending on scheduling.  Practices are usually held twice per week at one of the Bernards Townships schools.  We aim to have two teams per grade, depending on the turnout and level of play.  Ideally, each team is comprised of 10 players.

Forms and Registration:We will need you to complete the Physicians Report and a Power of Attorney, both can be found by clicking on the  Forms drop down. Please send your forms to the RYSI office; 65 South Maple Ave 2nd Floor Basking Ridge, NJ 07920.  We will require two online registrations. The first will be during the preseason, where we will ask you to register for the Season Tryouts. This can be found under the Registration tab. Once the tryouts are conducted and completed, you will be informed of your team placement. Once the teams are made, we will ask you to once more go to the registration tab and select Season Basketball Registration. There you will pay and fully register for the upcoming season. 

Parents remember that the guidance and skill level from the Coaching Staff will vary and at times might not meet your expectations but please remember they are only volunteers not "Coach K" ; they are trying their best and at times may make mistakes.

We ask that all players show up to every practice with a ball so their practice time will be more productive than just waiting on line for a ball when it's their turn. The girls will use a 28.5 inch ball. The 4th, 5th and 6th grade Boys teams use the girls size ball as well. 

If your player is going to miss practice, it is your obligation to tell the coach. If their is excessive missing of practices you may be asked to leave the team or may not get as much playing time in games as much as the other players. Please don't take a roster spot from someone else who wants to play and develop.
