4th Grade Developmental League – now open

The Ridgefield Basketball Association is pleased to offer the returning program “4th Grade RBA Basketball Development Program”. Many of our basketball community members asked for an additional development program while adding in a component of competition. This program has been designed for both boys and girls in 4th Grade but is contingent on an adequate number of participants.

The 4th Grade RBA Basketball Development Program will be as follows:

  • The program will run from December – March with one (1) 90-minute practice/clinic per week
    • The sole focus is on basketball development and fundamentals
    • Players should expect a fast-paced, focused environment that is based around developmental drills rather than games/scrimmages
  • This is designed to give 4th-grade boys & girls additional basketball exposure before the travel program which starts in 5th grade
  • Each practice will be run by a designated 4th-grade coach – along with a basketball curriculum from the Ridgefield Boys and Girls High School Coaches
  • We will play a series of competitive games against other local 4th Grade teams
    • Participants should expect to play between 3-4 games dependent on gym availability
  • The program will be open to boys and girls, but space is limited so please act quickly once registration opens
  • All participants must be registered for and play on an RBA 4th/5th house team


If you have any questions, please contact the program director Mike McCartan.  Mike can be reached at mccartan.mike@gmail.com.

We are also looking for parent volunteers who want to help during our clinics.

We look forward to having your child participate in this program.
