    2020 WINTER PROGRAMS


    The 2020-2021 season will face more challenges than any before it. As of late October, we have no local gymnasium access. As the pandemic evolves and ORCSD’s school board make decisions on winter gym use, ORYA may be able to offer local programming but families should expect a much later start, if at all. In the event we are able to offer local programming this winter, we will follow all ORCSD and State guidelines for covid safety. Programs will focus on development but may be less team focused and more individual focused to be able to offer a safer environment.

    Due to the uncertainty of local options, ORYA has created an offering for players at the older age groups (grades 5-8) to play at the RIM Sports Complex in Hampton.

    Why is there a difference per town for recreational program fees?
    When ORYA receives funding from the communities we serve, it directly subsidizes the participation of our ‘non-competitive’, recreational programs for members of that specific community. The differences between each residency-rate is a direct reflection of the expected or actual funding from each community in the budgeted year. If one community has a lower player fee, it means that community has chosen to reduce your participation fee in youth, recreational athletic programs. Travel-based programs are not subsidized by town funding.

    • 2020 Kindergarten

      Status of a 2020-2021 program will be tied to the availability of local gym use and ORCSD & State covid-19 guidelines.

      If ORYA is allowed to use local gym space this winter we may experience a later than normal start, smaller groups and/or other program changes to keep everyone as safe as possible during the pandemic.

      Players are introduced to the basic concepts of the game; dribbling with fingertips and with both hands, moving the ball in all directions, passing and receiving, two-handed shooting, in addition to learning basic rules and elements of the game. Playing fun games with hoops at a maximum of 8 feet provide higher levels of success for players of this age range, where technique is key!

    • 2020 Grades 3&4

      ORYA is in discussion with a couple neighboring towns about developing a small Grade 3&4 Rec. League for the 2020-2021 season. We would play 3v3, limit teams to 6 and play in a neighboring community on Saturdays. There may or may not be available time for practices but this may be the best option if we have no local gym space.

      To gauge interest we have created a survey to let us know if we should continue this discussion and/or how many teams we might be able to field. Let us know how you feel about this option – survey link below!

      Players in this program begin to train once per week and meet on Saturdays for 3v3 scrimmage play. This in-house program allows ORYA coaches to maximize touches on the ball, usage of 8 foot hoops and attention to detail. Individual skill and technique combined with introductions to rebounding, offensive and defensive positioning, game rules, and basic off-ball movement are incorporated.
