The Jr. NBA League was created for 11-13 year olds (Year 7 and Year 8) boys and girls in secondary schools to participate in basketball.
The League is organised and operated by the local basketball federations in partnership with the NBA.
The leagues now span most regions in England, including Co-Ed leagues for years 7 and 8 in the East of England, East Midlands, North-West, Yorkshire, London, South East, South West and the West Midlands. There will also be Co-Ed league for year 7 in the North East as well as girls leagues for years 7 and 8 in the North West and London.
Schools compete in 4 regular season games as part of 7 rounds of fixtures, followed by an elimination Playoff. Schools who top their groups then progress to the Semi Finals with the final 4 schools in each league playing in the Jr. NBA Finals to be crowned the league Champions.
