About the Jr. NBA Global Championship
Beginning in 2018, the Jr. NBA Global Championship is an international youth basketball tournament for the top 13-and-14-year-old boys and girls teams. Culminating in a week of on-court competition and off-court programming centered on the Jr. NBA’s core values of teamwork, respect determination and community at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World, Aug. 6-11, the tournament introduced a new layer of local qualifying competitions – many of them hosted by NBA teams – in 2019. Long-time league partner USA Basketball will enhance all domestic competitions and help increase accessibility by accrediting local tournaments, again licensing participating coaches, supporting all eight U.S. regional tournaments and promoting best practices through the implementation of the NBA and USA Basketball Youth Guidelines.
