NBA Doing its Part to Push Basketball to the Next Generation
As Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving, the NBA, in association with the Jr. NBA Flagship Network announced the tip-off of Jr. NBA Week, which will run from October 9 to the 16 and will be comprised of 15 of the best youth sports organizations in the United States.
Through this camp, the NBA will make certain that one million additional kids are able to play basketball in an environment that promotes health, wellness, cohesiveness, skill development, and character building.
Above are the 15-organizations that make up the Jr. NBA Flagship Network.
To help launch the new program, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry and his mother Sonya will join teammate Zaza Pachulia, Assistant Head Coach Mike Brown, and the Jr. Warriors on October 11 at the John Muir Health Ultimate Fieldhouse in Walnut Creek, California.
In what is another great initiative by the NBA, this is an incredible opportunity to help the youth through basketball!
