Toms River Basketball Association: Welcome


We are recreational basketball program for the youth of Toms River. Divisions are defined by school grades. We have boys and girls divisions ranging from 3rd grade through High School. In addition, we have a clinic division for 2nd grade boys and girls as well as a Challenger division for special needs children. We are an ALL volunteer organization. Our board members and coaches give freely of their time to provide the youth of Toms River an opportunity to participate in an organized recreational basketball program. Please be respectful when contacting board members as they have willingly provided their personal phone numbers and email addresses (Board/Division Leader Link) to assist parents with questions or problems.

The TRBA has a Zero Tolerance policy regarding player, coach, or spectator behavior.  Any player, coach or spectator who, in the opinion of the TRBA board, acts in a threatening manner toward another player, coach, spectator or official, will be BANNED from the TRBA.  NO EXCEPTIONS, NO REFUNDS. 

The TRBA believes in and encourages the principles of good sportsmanship. Verbal harassment of game officials, players, coaches and spectators WILL NOT be tolerated.  Anyone attending a TRBA event who speaks or behaves in such a manner will be asked to stop the offending behavior/language. If the behavior continues, the game will be stopped and the offender(s) will be asked to leave the building.  The game will not continue until the offender (s) leaves the building.  The referee has the authority to call a forfeiture of the game.  Repeat offenders will be BANNED from the TRBA.  NO EXCEPTIONS, NO REFUNDS.

The TRBA will be offering at least three recreational sessions this summer.  Current (as of May) Boys/Girls 4th & 5th graders, current Boys 6th and 7th graders, and current Boys 8th through 11th graders.
We hope to have a separate division of current Girls 6th through 11th grade. However this depends on the number of girls who register.  If we do not have enough girls registered to facilitate a separate division, then the  
divisions may need to be co-ed (both boys and girls).   We would like to have separate boys and girls sessions if the numbers allow us to do so. 
When registering, boys and girls will be separated by grouping as stated above. However, please understand that depending on the number of girls who register, some sessions may need to be co-ed and others may not.
The games will start in mid-June and run Mondays through Thursdays and some Fridays (if needed). Gym locations have not yet been finalized. There will be two or three games per night. Game times will start at approximately 6pm. Each team will play two games per week.  The season will be over by the end of July or first week of August.

Ideally, each team will consist of an equal number of players from each grade level. However, this depends on the mixture of registrations received. Our goal is to create fair and balanced teams, with an emphasis on fair play and sportsmanship.
Each team will have one practice prior to start of games.  The practices will be held during the week prior to the first game. We will provide TRBA t-shirts for the games. Players are to provide black shorts to be worn for all games.
Online registration will begin on May 1.  First come, first served. The number of players for each of these sessions will be LIMITED. Please register early to avoid being placed on the Waiting List (non-refundable $5.00 fee applied). Registrations for both players and coaches MUST be completed on-line.  NO paper registrations will be accepted.

Early Registration (May 1 - May 15)        -   $85.00
Regular Registration (May 16 - May 31) -  $100.00
Late Registration (June 1 & Beyond)     -  $115.00
The third family member is registered at 50% of the registration fee, all subsequent members are free of charge. For the discount to be applied, all family members must register at the same time. NO REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED AFTER MAY 15th. All refunds are charged a $5.00 transaction fee.
