Stanley Lane Basketball Leagues
Co-ed and Girls Winter Leagues
January 6 – March 10, 2019
The Stanley Lane Basketball League is a developmental program that focuses on skill building, teamwork, and sportsmanship. We use the USA Basketball Youth Guidelines as a guide for our approach, and all teams are coached by our Riverdale Y professional staff.
In grades 1-2, we focus on fundamentals through a clinic-style approach, and coaches play during scrimmages to support the learning process. Grades 3-4 and 5-6 play weekly games where coaches continue to support skill development with a focus on team play and strategy, and with attention to balanced playing time. In grades 7-12, coaches increase the level of strategy and skill expectation in a gradually more competitive environment, with attention to teamwork and sportsmanship.
We are excited to introduce a Girls League for grades 6-8, which offers the opportunity for middle-school girls to develop their basketball skills and strategy in a girls only environment.
The Stanley Lane League follows the Values and Expectations for Riverdale Y Athletics.
