Travel Basketball League Sign-Ups

The Newport Recreation Department is accepting registrations for the Rhode Island Youth Basketball Association (RIYBA), a travel tournament league holding weekly tournaments throughout R.I. beginning in late November and ending in mid-March. Teams for boys and girls divisions for grades six, seven and eight are planned. If there is enough interest, a second team in each age group will be formed. Tryout dates, if necessary, will be announced after the close of registration.

Boys and girls in grades four and five are eligible to play in the R.I. Developmental Travel League. Registration information for the RIDL will be available in early-October, along with information for Newport Recreation House Leagues.

A $20 deposit is required to reserve a place on teams. The deposit will go towards the player’s total tournament fees. Fees will be based upon the number of tournaments in which the team elects to participate. All players will be required to participate in the department’s house leagues, which begin in early December. For registration forms, visit register.communitypass.net/cityofnewport. Deadline to register is Wednesday, Oct. 18 or until teams are full. Contact the recreation office at 401-845-5800 with any questions.
