Program Overview


The Jr. NBA, the league’s global youth basketball program for boys and girls, teaches the fundamental skills as well as the core values of the game at the grassroots level in an effort to help grow and improve the youth basketball experience for players, coaches and parents.

The program also instills the Jr. NBA’s core values of Sportsmanship, Teamwork, a positive Attitude, and Respect (S.T.A.R.), while teaching the importance of leading healthy and active lifestyles. The Jr. NBA program is free across all stages.


The Jr. NBA Vietnam 2019 program for boys and girls is split into multiple stages: the Jr NBA Vietnam Selection Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi; the Jr. NBA Global Championship Asia Pacific Qualifiers; the Jr. NBA Global Championship in the U.S. held from August 6-11 at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World near Orlando, Florida.
