Jr. NBA League Success!
This year, our Year 7 and 8 Basketball teams are competing in the prestigious Jr. NBA League tournaments!
The Jr. NBA league is an exciting partnership between the National Basketball League (NBA) and Basketball England. It aims to inspire more pupils to participate in and enjoy basketball whilst also promoting the NBA values such as sportsmanship, teamwork, attitude, respect and healthy living. The Jr. NBA League format mirrors the NBA, including a draft, playoffs and replica kits, giving pupils a real NBA experience.
Only 30 schools are entered into the competition to represent 1 of the 30 NBA teams so this is a fantastic achievement. Our Year 7 team will be representing the Portland Trailblazers whilst our Year 8 team will be representing the LA Lakers! Each team will compete in a 7 round season culminating in a single game elimination playoff tournament to determine the Jr. NBA Basketball England League Champions.
