Junior NBA - Expanding in NL
REMINDER: The NLBA is pleased to announce that the Jr NBA program which launched in Virginia Park Elementary School, St. John's this past year is looking to expand heading into the 2015-16 year. The program comes as part of a new partnership with NBA Canada. The Jr. NBA program provides an entry-level basketball program for young children 5 to 7 years old by providing a fun, active and healthy learning environment.
The NLBA is seeking the interest of the NL basketball community from groups or individuals that may be interested in hosting a program in their community.
We are looking to use this program to boost basketball participation province-wide.
