ABOUT SUMMER LEAGUE JR. NBA

OUR MISSION

The goal of Summer League Jr. NBA is to assist the youth throughout Southern Nevada and to provide them with healthy programming focused on leadership, sportsmanship, and accountability while instilling positive core values.

Developed by the operators of the annual NBA Summer League, Summer League Jr. NBA is the premier 6th, 7th and 8th grade boys and girls basketball league in Las Vegas comprised of student-athletes from local middle schools.

As a way of giving back to the community for its many years of support, the NBA Summer League will underwrite all costs for the league facility rentals, coaches and student-athletes to participate.

 

SETTING A NEW STANDARD

All participants in the league were selected to participate in a tryout by being nominated by their school’s basketball coaches. All players are required to meet and maintain grade and conduct requirements. Participants in the league were chosen from an evaluation tryout with over 200 participants.

The boys and girls championship teams will be honored during a half-time at the NBA Summer League taking place at Thomas & Mack Center and Cox Pavilion.
