Ridley JR ABA

History and Mission

The Ridley JR ABA has served the youth of Ridley Township and surrounding areas since 1964 and  is embarking on our 53rd year!  The ABA programs exists to help children in the development of the game of basketball but also provide positive life skills that will carry on with each player as they grow.  Our mission is to provide safe, enjoyable recreation opportunities for all participants.

Our philosophy is a simple one!  The ABA is committed to teaching  basic skills and fundamentals of the sport in which young people need to be able to play in a competitive game environments.  We strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment, where all children will have the opportunity to play regardless of skill level.

Finally, it is our mission to ensure each child has a positive, rewarding experience while participating in our program, and that each child will learn the importance of sportsmanship and teamwork as they play in the Ridley JR ABA.

Offered Programs


The recreational program is offered to boys and girls ages 5-15 years of age.  The recreational program provides a competitive environment for all skill sets and levels and provides a environment in which sportsmanship and fundamental skill sets are developed.
