The 2nd season of the Summer League Jr. NBA’s Friday Night Hoops ended with the 2018 Fall League Championship game recently at the Tarkanian Sports Academy in Las Vegas.
Now in our second year, the 2018 Summer League Jr. NBA Fall League consisted of 8 teams, 4 boys and 4 girls – grades 6-8, with a total of 80 student-athletes participating throughout the 6 weeks of game play and practices.
We’d like to congratulate both the Girls & Boys Champions on securing their wins. In the Girls division, the #2 seeded Sparks, led by Coach Taylor, defeated the #1 seeded Dream to earn their gold. In the Boys division, Coach Martez and the #1 seeded Cavaliers defeated the #2 seeded Lakers to claim their first Championship.
Outside of the gym, the Tomorrow’s Stars Foundation and the Summer League Jr. NBA staff & student-athletes took part in a number of community relations programs including the Harvest Mile 58 Mile March, the “Three Point Basket” Thanksgiving Drive, the Veteran’s Village 5K and more.
These programs help continue to fulfill the goal of the Summer League Jr. NBA – 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.
This season the Tomorrow’s Stars Foundation also hosted a giveaway to say thanks to all of our wonderful community and continued supporters. The giveaway included over $1,500 in prizes including an Amazon gift card, Target gift cards and 1iTunes gift cards.
We want to thank everyone involved in the Summer League Jr. NBA for their tireless effort in making this the best season yet!
