Register Now for Basketball!
National Junior Basketball (NJB) celebrates its 32nd anniversary and our Scripps Ranch chapter is getting ready to start its 19th season! Our chapter is the largest in the county. NJB’s program is designed to introduce, teach, and develop the fundamentals of basketball to our youth, as well as promote good sportsmanship, teamwork, and healthy competition. We feel this creates a valuable learning experience for children in our community and hope it fosters great enthusiasm for the game.
Last year we had 48 teams and 475 children in NJB. The league is made up of boys and girls in grades 3–8 of all skill levels. Practices are typically once a week, and games are played on weekends in the Scripps Ranch High School gym. Registration is open at www.ScrippsRanchNJB.org. Important information:
- Saturday, Oct. 1—Registration ends
- Sunday, Oct. 2 and 9—Assessments
- Monday, Oct. 31—Practices begin
- Registration—$160 through Friday, Sept. 30; $190 after Sept. 30
We are looking for coaches in every division! If you have questions, please contact us at [email protected] We look forward to seeing you out on the courts!
