Regan Roberts Basketball League

download (3)
Regan Roberts Youth Basketball League is an instructional basketball league held in Blythewood for children in first grade through twelfth grade. This league was actually started by Regan Roberts, a P.E. teacher at Bethel-Hanberry Elementary School, before her untimely death. It was her dream to offer a basketball program that would give children an opportunity to learn the fundamental skills of basketball, while building friendships that come from belonging to a team. She made this dream known to some members of Trinity United Methodist Church who made arrangements for this league to continue after her death. This league has been operating since 1998 with approximately 200 children participating each season.

Registration for this year’s high school league will be on a first come first served basis and will be limited to the first 20 players (20 players for 9th through 12th Grades).

High school league players will not be placed on a set team.  Each week players will show up to form teams based on the number of players.  This will insure that teams are even and each team has enough players for a game.  This should make this league more fun and competitive, by giving each player the opportunity to have new teammates each week.

Coaches Clinic

RRBL is an instructional league.  Many coaches are not comfortable teaching basic fundamentals of basketball or the best ways to run a practice to make it fun and a good experience for the kids. This year a FREE coaches clinic will be held on November 3rd from 9-11.  Those running it will have a tremendous knowledge coaching and teaching the game of basketball at a very high level and will include coaches or players who have played basketball at a very high level.  You will learn something from this and you are highly encouraged to attend if you plan to coach or be an assistant.
