Jr. NBA Johannesburg League

The Jr. NBA Johannesburg League creates a competitive league for boys and girls under the age of 15. The league features 30 Johannesburg schools, communities and youth clubs that are branded by an NBA team each, and compete in a 14-game season. The league culminates in a single game elimination playoffs to determine the Jr. NBA Johannesburg League champions that will in the near future compete internationally against Jr NBA champions of other countries.

The Jr. NBA Johannesburg League format mirrors the NBA including a virtual Draft, Conference finals and a Jr. NBA final being played in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The objective of the League is to leverage the excitement of the NBA brand to inspire and engage more young people to participate in basketball by having a fun, positive first experience with the game. The League also promote NBA values as well as encouraging physical activity and healthy living.

Our teams have enjoyed success in the Jr. NBA Johannesburg League with the Cavaliers playing in the conference finals and the Trailblazers making it to the conference semifinals.

Practice days are on Mondays and Fridays from 15h00-17h00 at St David’s Marist Inanda, 36 Rivonia Road, Sandton.
