The Jr. NBA Skills Challenge presented by Under Armour provides boys and girls ages 13 and under the opportunity to showcase their dribbling, shooting, and rebounding skills in the sport of basketball. An online administrative tool kit will allow organizations to easily administer the program. Boys and girls compete separately in two different age groups: 11U and 13U. Participants compete in up to three (3) levels of competition, including the National Finals in New York City before the 2020 NBA Draft presented by State Farm. The program is free for all participants and organizations.
Local Competitions: November 1, 2019 – February 15, 2020 (Nationwide)
Jr. NBA organizations can register to conduct the Jr. NBA Skills Challenge presented by Under Armour program for their participants using the online administrative tool kit. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place finishers in each age and gender group are submitted and advance to a Regional Competition.
The Basketball Factory puts an emphasis on using proper basketball footwork. Having great footwork can enhance your speed on the court and help you contain a faster player. The most skilled players in basketball have great footwork.
All participants must have a parent or guardian fill out a registration/liability form obtained from the Jr. NBA member organization hosting a Local Competition or online at www.jrnba.com/skillschallenge. Boys and girls ages 13 and under MUST provide a copy of a valid birth certificate or other proof of identification for age verification. Each player may participate in only one Local Competition. Competing in more than one Local Competition will result in disqualification.
The two age groups are: 11U and 13U with boys and girls competing separately.
