Established in 1983, NJB is looking to expand into your area! Our expansion team is working hard to establish programs to provide youth basketball year round leagues emphasizing sportsmanship and player development.

Benefits of Expansion – Starting up an NJB Chapter in your area has many benefits:

  • Use of non-profit status. 501(c)(3)
  • NJB sanctioned tournaments
  • Year round leagues and programs
  • Certified programs for coaches and referees
  • Insurance coverage for every athlete, coach, and facility
  • Excellent vendors and sponsors for national tournaments.
  • AAU Partner

Expansion Process: Starting up an NJB Chapter is a very exciting and rewarding process. NJB will provide all the tools you will need to start up your chapter:

  • Flyers (distributed to your school district), posters, banners
  • NJB website which will be used to promote your chapter and accept registration
  • Assistance from the NJB Expansion Department
  • Online Management Software

As a chapter developer, NJB will help you identify local high schools or recreation centers that are currently working with youth programs to act as your Chapter venue. Once your high school venue has been secured and flyers have been approved by the school district(s), NJB will sponsor free fundamental clinics, and player registration, with the goal of increasing the interest in your new Chapter.

If you have any questions or have interest in participating, please contact:
