National Academy of Athletics to offer JR. NBA Basketball Camps and Leagues

Santa Rosa, California – National Academy of Athletics is now authorized to bring JR NBA, the official youth basketball participation program of the NBA, to the over 80 communities it currently offers youth sports programming. The Jr. NBA is the official youth basketball participation program of the NBA. 

As of September 2018, the National Academy of Athletics is proudly adding JR NBA to the programs they offer. Each municipality, YMCA, Boys & Girls Club and school that the NAofA has become a Community Partner with, will have the opportunity to bring this great program to the youth in their community.

The Jr. NBA philosophy is very much aligned with the National Academy of Athletics. Both organizations are dedicated to developing a life-long passion for the game of basketball in boys and girls by teaching them the fundamentals of the sport while instilling core values including teamwork, respect and sportsmanship. The Jr. NBA’s holistic approach is intended to strengthen the culture of youth basketball, teach life lessons, and empower youth to live a full and healthy life. The Jr. NBA and the NAofA believe this philosophy leads to developing complete and well-rounded basketball players and individuals. The National Academy of Athletics will serve a larger community of youth athletes by offering a fun, basketball experience for boys and girls ages 5-13.

“The National Academy of Athletics and the JR NBA have a “like-minded” approach to youth sports and that is why it is such a great fit. By adding the JR NBA program to our already powerful list of youth sports programs, the National Academy of Athletics is poised to grow its presence,” stated Aaron Locks, Founder and CEO.
