NBA Junior League

Welcome to NBA Jr., the premier youth basketball recreational league for aspiring young players here at Nittany Valley Sports Centre! Designed for players in grades 5-9, NBA Jr. offers an exciting and inclusive basketball experience that focuses on skill development, teamwork, and sportsmanship in a fun and supportive environment.

Our program is open to boys and girls of all skill levels, from beginners to more experienced players, and is perfect for those looking to try basketball for the first time or improve their existing skills.

Our league is structured to provide a balanced and competitive experience for all players. Teams are formed by a player evaluation process, ensuring that each team is well-matched and has the opportunity to compete at their best. NBA Jr. follows modified rules that are tailored to the age and skill level of the players, allowing them to learn and progress at their own pace.

NBA Jr. is more than just a basketball league; it’s a community. Our league promotes a positive and inclusive environment where players are encouraged to develop not only their basketball skills, but also their character. We emphasize teamwork, respect for coaches, officials, and opponents, and good sportsmanship. Our experienced coaches are passionate about teaching the fundamentals of the game, as well as fostering a love for basketball and promoting healthy competition.
